Our regularly published litigation report shows that, for the first quarter of 2020, just over 80% of the cases filed in West Texas were brought by NPEs, with only Delaware receiving more new patent complaints. Delaware had 174 new cases in Q1; West Texas, 158. Of those, 128 were brought by NPEs (including subsidiaries of aggregators like Oso IP, Fortress, IP Edge, Longhorn, Acacia, and others). That means the Western District is on pace for 600 patent cases in 2020.
