Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com reporter Scott Graham. The Federal Circuit’s motions panel has been working overtime. It’s issued three mandamus opinions on patent venue, each time warning that such pretrial rulings are “rarely granted.” I’ll run down the two latest. Plus, we’ll look at another eight-figure “exceptional case” fee award and who’s stepping into a $706 million trade secrets appeal. Oh, and in case you missed it, the latest Apple-Samsung trial is underway

Many thanks to readers who’ve emailed me suggestions and ideas. Remember you can follow me on Twitter too.
