Episode Summary

We discuss two opinions in patent law cases with guests Roman Martinez and Willy Jay.

Episode Notes

This week, we come to you from Bank of America's Legal Round Table conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. After sitting on a panel, we recruited two guest hosts for this episode: Roman Martinez of Latham & Watkins, and Willy Jay of Goodwin Procter.

The Court hasn't given us much to talk about, but fortunately we held a couple of opinions for exactly this reason. We'll get into the results in the patent law cases of Oil States Energy Services v. Greene’s Energy Group and SAS Institute Inc. v. Iancu.

Finally, we'll get a tiny peek into next season of First Mondays by going over some recent grants, including one interesting death penalty case about the method of execution.

Special thanks to our sponsor this week, The Great Courses Plus. To get a month-long, completely free trial of all the incredible courses and lectures they have to offer, visit http://www.thegreatcoursesplus.com/firstmondays.
