Rudy Kim, Partner, Morrison & Foerster trial counsel in Waymo v. Uber, and Stephanie P. Skaff, Head of the Trial Team at Farella Braun & Martel in the case of Emerson Electric v. BladeRoom will lead the litigation discussion on both trials.

A number of key issues are emerging which they and rest of the faculty will discuss:

  • When will courts grant ex parte seizure orders? What are the best tactics? Less dramatic relief needs to be considered as well.
  • Why is “inevitable disclosure” now becoming the norm?
  • Recent cases on damages break new ground with development costs and disgorgement precedents.
  • How to amend your best practices with the increased focus on diminishing value of software patents. 
  • How to decide what jurisdiction to use. DTSA does not preempt state law, and DTSA claims can co-exist with state actions.
