40% of Section 337 Actions Go to Trial

According to Tom Jarvis in a webinar entitled "IP Litigation at the ITC: Recent Developments and Best Practices," about 40% of unfair import investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission go to trial as compared to only about 3% of district court cases. However, settlements often occur after trial and frequently involve monetary payments.
