Knorr Bremse Systeme Fuer Nutzfaerzeuge GMBH v. Dana Corp. 383 F.3d 1337 (Fed. Cir. 2004) (en banc). Authored and filed an amicus brief in the Federal Circuit on behalf of Public Patent Foundation urging that, with respect to willfulness of infringement, no adverse inference should be drawn because a defendant invokes attorney-client privilege to protect advice of counsel. Nor should an adverse inference be drawn where an accused infringer knew of the relevant patent but did not obtain independent legal advice. In a landmark ruling, the Federal Circuit agreed.
