Hatch will re-introduce a patent litigation reform act with "fee shifting" in 2015

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) says that he will reintroduce patent litigation reform legislation next year, and will insist that any bill include "fee shifting", to apply in cases where the lawsuit should not have been brought, similar to "loser pays".  A Southeast Texas newspaper has a story by Jessica M. Karmasek, link here.

Hatch had introduced the Patent Litigation Integrity Act in 2013.
