Justice Kagan to Visit the University of Minnesota on Monday

On Monday, October 21, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will visit the University of Minnesota Law School, and will give the 2019 Stein Lecture later that afternoon at the Northrop Auditorium.  I look forward to hearing her speak.  Regarding IP matters specifically, Justice Kagan has authored majority opinions in three patent-related cases--Caraco Pharmaceutical Labs. v. Novo Nordisk A/S, Bowman v. Monsanto Co., and Kimble v. Marvel Entertainment, LLC (the last of which I blogged about quite a bit, see, e.g., here)--as well as the majority opinion in two of last year's trademark-related decisions, Mission Product Holdings, Inc. v. Tempnology, LLC. and Iancu v. Brunetti, and the opinion in the 2016 copyright/attorney's fees case, Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, Inc.  Welcome, Justice Kagan!
