Partner Donald W. Rupert Reappointed to Seventh Circuit Jury Instruction Committee
Partner Donald W. Rupert has been reappointed to the patent jury instruction committee of the Seventh Circuit Jury Instruction Committee. He will work with lawyers and federal judges from Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin to revise the patent jury instructions that are available for use in all federal courts in the Seventh Circuit. Mr. Rupert was a member of the initial patent jury instruction committee in 2007–2008 that prepared patent instructions which were approved by the Seventh Circuit. Those instructions will now be revised to incorporate changes in the patent laws resulting from court decisions and the America Invents Act.
