As of March 24, 2020, Judge Albright has notified us via the patent work group that all of his civil hearings will still proceed by telephone (at least until May 1), unless he issues an Order on a specific case/hearing.
The Court is not anticipating using video or Webex at this time given the coordination and connectivity challenges those items can present. Depending on the reliability of the Court’s conference line, the Court may ask the parties to host the teleconferences and will contact the parties in advance should that occur. In addition, the Court will be providing instructions about submitting presentation materials for hearings via email.
We suspect Josh Yi will be emailing the parties with those instructions for upcoming hearings, but if you have any questions you can contact Josh directly.
