Also In Texas, InNova Suit Doesn’t Pass The Smell Test

Much about this lawsuit just seems wrong:

Of particular concern is this point in the article:

“Palo Alto lawyer Christopher Banys is leading the new cases and, as before, the litigation is taking place in Marshall, Texas which has a reputation for plaintiff-friendly juries who enjoy sticking it to technology companies. Banys will be working with Texas firm Ward & Smith which recently hired T. John Ward, a former federal judge who established East Texas as a leading patent venue. The firm was founded by Ward’s son, noted patent troll lawyer T. John “Johnny” Ward Jr.”

It’s a free country, but does that strike anyone as morally wrong?
