A: Generally, almost all patent litigation is in federal court. Some patent litigation is in state court if it is related to a patent issue – which may apply to your situation of a patent/contract because the contract is in question and therefore the case will be decided in state court – but it depends because this is specific to your facts. You’ll have to know what case law to look at federal or state.

It sounds simple but web searching a specific question about your case can give some answers. Some law firm blogs have good info – they will have write ups of litigation in review for a certain year summarizing different cases in patent and more general sources of patent litigation. Also searching for different questions all in the same topic with lead you to different answers.

But usually many times hiring legal counsel will also help you interpret what you read.
