Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. I’m leading off today with an order from Judge Susan Illston that manages to apply one of this year’s big Supreme Court patent rulings and possibly one of next year’s too. I’ve also got a rundown of the attorneys handling a potentially massive case on cell tower patents, and a not-so-big one on rhinestone-covered pepper spray canisters. Please feel free as always to email me your feedback and follow me on Twitter.

Think Lean Daily Message

"Law firms are rightly afraid of having their bills challenged or, worse still, being sued by clients. They also have numerous safety related processes. These include client vetting, conflict checks, and of course training and supervision of lawyers. But the ultimate safety measure is doing the work effectively, efficiently, and transparently."
