Welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. I’ve spent the week accompanied by the rat-a-tat-tat of cross examination and redirect by top patent litigators doing battle in Waco, Texas. This has been made possible by U.S. District Judge Alan Albright’s decision to make audio of VLSI Technology v. Intel available to the public. I’ve also benefited from the insights of lawyers who’ve been blogging, podcasting and otherwise conveying eyewitness accounts. Two Winston & Strawn attorneys were kind enough to record a podcast with me about the trial, which will appear shortly on Law.com’s Legal Speak.

Below you’ll find a brief outline of the trial, plus a deep dive into one of the many tit-for-tat-for-tit exchanges between the top guns at Irell & Manella and WilmerHale. And if that isn’t enough Waco news for you, I’ll run down the Federal Circuit’s latest decision on a request to transfer out of Texas.
