Dear Inn Members:
As you may be aware Bills are pending in Congress (S. 299 &
H.R. 628) to establish a pilot program in certain U.S. District
Courts to encourage enhancement in expertise in patent cases. The
court in the EDPA has a long history involving IP cases and would
be a natural choice for the pilot program. Of course, selection
into this program is not ensured and our congressmen need to know
our position on these Bills.
To that end, the Board of the Benjamin Franklin American Inn of
Court has approved the attached and encourages all of our members
to send this letter to their respective Senators and House Members.
We hope that you will do so.
For your convenience you can find information about your
Thank you in advance.
Jacques L. Etkowicz
President, Benjamin Franklin American Inn of Court
