On February 25, 2014, Chief U.S. District Judge Leonard Davis of the Eastern District of Texas unveiled an optional accelerated discovery schedule for cases involving claims of patent infringement. General Order 14-3 authorizes the use of a “Track B Initial Patent Case Management Order,” which requires the early disclosure of license and settlement agreements for the asserted patents, summary sales information for the accused products, and a good faith damages calculation and estimate. This is in addition to the early disclosure of infringement and invalidity contentions already familiar to patent litigants in the Eastern District of Texas.
