Incompetence Personified

In Smith & Nephew v. Arthrex, Oregon district court Judge Michael W. Mosman displayed his bias and incompetence once again. A plutocratic conservative, his sympathy is always for corporations accused of patent infringement. This case has gone through three trials, owing to Mosman's inability to decently construe claims or act impartially. When a jury found in Smith's favor, Mosman simply overturned it as a matter of law, without any opinion. A CAFC panel reversed and remanded for yet another round. (CAFC 2012-1265)
