Join the MSBA IP section for a roundtable discussion on the Supreme Court case of Minerva v. Hologic: the Sustainment of the Assignor Estoppel Doctrine.
The Supreme Court in Minerva v. Hologic in a narrow decision formally applied the doctrine of assignor estoppel, amid vigorous dissents in the 5-4 decision, basing their ruling on grounds of fairness, and clipping the Federal Circuit’s interpretation. This discussion will work through the facts of the case and touch on the history and controversy of the doctrine.
