Michael E. McCabe, Jr. was quoted in The Recorder in its front-page article published on September 15, 2017, entitled, Did McKool Smith Violate Prosecution Bar in High-Profile Patent Case? (by Scott Graham) (sub req’d). The article addresses a district court’s finding that attorneys for Eolas Technologies, Inc.  violated a patent “prosecution bar” prohibiting litigation counsel who received highly confidential information from working on certain patent prosecution matters for one year following the “entry of a final non-appealable judgment.” Amazon is seeking to have Eolas’ patents found unenforceable based on the asserted protective order violation.  The case is Eolas Technologies, Inc. v. Amazon.com Inc., Case No. 17-cv-03022-JST (N.D. Cal. Sept. 1, 2017).
