Owen Byrd, Lex Machina’s Chief Evangelist and General Counsel, and the Lex Machina team had a great time speaking with our customers as well as new and old friends at the Bay Area and Chicago Legal Analytics Luncheons this month.
During the luncheons, Owen presented trends and insights on patent, copyright, trademark and securities litigation data from Lex Machina’s Legal Analytics platform. He brought to the groups’ attention a noteworthy trend observed in the Eastern District of Texas. In Q2 2016 there was an uptick in its proportion of total new filings to 37% against Q1 (30%). In comparison, in 2015, the district had 43% of the patent cases filed.
