Jurisdictional Analysis – Time to Trial, Favorable Courts & Other Litigation Trends

Contributor: Keith Harrison.

January 2017

Some 2016 litigation trends are new, while others continue to follow familiar patterns. The Eastern District of New York became the hotbed for antitrust complaints, while the Eastern District of Texas continues its long-established reign as the most popular court for IP litigation. The Eastern District of Virginia earned its title as the "Rocket Docket," as cases proceeded from filing to trial faster than those in any other district.

False Claims Act Litigation continues to be on the rise, with the Department of Justice trumpeting $4.7 billion in 2016 FCA recoveries. Perhaps unexpectedly, more FCA cases were filed in the District of Maryland than in any other district, but Florida is the state where the most FCA cases were filed, spread among its three federal districts.
