Amicus Brief in Phillips v AWH
Our director, Polk Wagner, recently filed (along with Joe Miller of the Lewis & Clark Law School) an amicus brief in Phillips v AWH Corp., No. 03-1269 (July 21, 2004) (Order), in response to the court's request for assistance in resolving issues surrounding claim construction.
