Cantor Colburn Client Alert: Fed. Cir. Tackles Venue Question for Hatch-Waxman Suits

Client Alert: Fed. Cir. Tackles Venue Question for Hatch-Waxman Suits
On November 5, 2020, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (“CAFC”) weighed in on a question of first impression about proper venue in Hatch-Waxman suits with respect to where infringement occurs. The CAFC concluded that in cases brought under 35 U.S.C. § 271(e)(2)(A), infringement occurs for venue purposes only in districts where actions related to the submission of an Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) occur, not in all locations where future distribution of generic products is contemplated.
