Eastern District of Texas grants less than 10% of summary judgment motions

Between 2003 and 2004, less than 10% of summary judgment motions made in the Eastern District of Texas were granted, compared to a nationwide rate of about 40%. Further, between 2002 and 2004 the Eastern District of Texas had one of the lowest rates of venue transfer requests granted – about 33% – compared to a national average around 50%. This combination ensured that patent cases stayed in the Eastern District of Texas and made it to a jury – a death knell for the defense.
