Washington and Lee law professor Christopher Seaman has recently co-authored an amicus curiae brief (with Professor Jason Rantanen of the University of Iowa College of Law).  The brief was filed at the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of several intellectual property law professors last week in two cases:  No. 14-1513, Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc., and No. 14-1520, Stryker Corp. v. Zimmer, Inc. The issue in both cases is the standard for awarding enhanced (increased) damages for patent infringement under 35 U.S.C. § 284.

Professor Seaman has written about this issue in a previously published piece titled, Willful Patent Infringement and Enhanced Damages After In re Seagate: An Empirical Study, 97 Iowa L. Rev. 417 (2012),
