To complete my continuing legal education (required every 2 yrs) I took a course on the markman hearing. To say that I was lost is an understatement; and I personally attended the hearing in this case. To expect a Judge to comprehend the technology , while handling a full case load, in 2 months must be very very difficult. What will be interesting is to see how much money the parties spent on the Judges tech "guru", as the agreement was to split the expert cost. Judge Dalton has a reputation of being a very fair and impartial jurist; so my personal view is "take as much time as you need, and get it right'.
