Davis Polk partner and IP Litigation head Ashok Ramani was quoted in Law360 on the top patent rulings of 2022. Discussing Caltech v. Broadcom, Ashok said that the ruling “will have a really sweeping impact.” He continued, “There’s not supposed to be any more holding back your No. 2 argument in case the IPR doesn’t work. You have to bring all your best stuff to the PTAB at once.”

Ashok also noted that overturning such a large verdict is important in and of itself, given the court’s history of not letting high-dollar verdicts stand. “It’s another example of a large plaintiffs-side verdict getting reversed,” he said.
