Research has shown that US patent litigation was heavily concentrated in some familiar courts over the past three years, finds Sarah Speight.

The Western District of Texas remained the top venue for US patent litigation last year, according to the latest “Lex Machina Patent Litigation Report” published in May.

Cumulatively, the most popular venue over the past three years was the District of Delaware.

Between 2019 and 2021, the Delaware court took 24% of cases. The next four most popular courts since 2019 were the Central District of California, Eastern District of Texas, Western District of Texas and the Northern District of California.
