Yen-Shyang Tseng, Keller/Anderle LLP associate, has published an article in the December 2016 issue of “Orange County Lawyer,” the official publication of the Orange County Bar Association.

The article, “Infringement and Enhanced Damages After Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc.” points out “In June, the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc., 136 S.Ct. 1923 (2016).  The Court held that enhanced damages under 35 U.S.C. § 284 did not require a patentee to prove the infringer acted with objective recklessness.  The Court reached the same result just two years ago for attorney fee awards under 35 U.S.C. § 285 in Octane Fitness, LLC v. ICON Health & Fitness Inc., 134 S.Ct. 1749 (2014).  While the Court’s analysis and decision in Halo was unsurprising given its previous decision in Octane Fitness, the practical effects can be monumental.”
