U.S. Supreme Court Grants Cert in WesternGeco

The case is WesternGeco LLC v. ION Geophysical Corp., No. 16-1011, and here is the question presented:  "Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit erred in holding that lost profits arising from prohibited combinations occurring outside of the United States are categorically unavailable in cases where patent infringement is proven under 35 U.S.C. section 271(f)."  I've blogged about this case several times now, most recently here, and it appears this will not be the last time.  I may have more to say next week, but for now here is a link to today's Supreme Court order list, courtesy of Scotus Blog, and here is a link to a story on Law 360 that alerted me to this development.
