Bessen-Meurer Study Disputed

in new study by two law professors:

“First, we review a recent study, “The Direct Costs of NPE Disputes,” by James Bessen and Michael J. Meurer. The study presents new data on the litigation costs and settlement expenses incurred by a subset of defendants in NPE cases. Some of their findings are provocative, but we find their methodology to be deficient in several respects, which limits the usefulness of the data and thus the implications that can be drawn from them.”
