Judge in East Texas turns the tables on a patent troll

East Texas (the real South) has been the favored venue for patent trolls, until now.

Ars Technica is reporting (story by Joe Mullin) that a federal judge in “plaintiff-friendly” East Texas has turned tables and thrown out 168 suits filed by eDekka, story here. The “patent” is described on Google here  and is nothing more than the “abstract idea of storing and labeling information”.  The defendants may be able to get attorneys fees back.
