Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham, and I cannot guarantee that there isn’t a tape of me using the phrase “patent troll.” I’ve got some big, breaking news below: David Ruschke’s three-year tenure as chief judge of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board has apparently come to an end. Plus, I have another look at a $66 million trade secrets verdict and an exceptional case fee award that’s due in part to IPRs run wild. As always I encourage you to email me your thoughts and feedback and follow me on Twitter.
