Fitch Even Partner Karl Fink Quoted in Bloomberg Law Article

April 14, 2022

Fitch Even partner Karl R. Fink was quoted in the Bloomberg Law article, “Cisco Wants $2 Billion Patent Hit Axed Over Judge’s Wife’s Stock.” The article discusses a pending appeal of a $1.9 billion judgment of patent infringement wherein the Federal Circuit is considering whether the judgment should be vacated because, shortly before entering judgment, the judge discovered his wife had recently purchased shares of Cisco stock and therefore the judge should have recused himself and not entered the judgment.

In the article, Karl comments that “It’s unusual to hear about a judge’s acquisition of stock of a party or a wife’s acquisition of stock of a party during a case.” He goes on to say that “The concern is of the integrity of the judicial system” and it is a “crying shame” that this happened so late in the proceedings that might have to be done over.

Karl is co-chair of Fitch Even’s litigation practice. He has handled hundreds of lawsuits in state and federal courts across the U.S., with positive results as first chair in all stages of litigation, including jury trial, bench trial, and appeal.

The article can be read in its entirety on the Bloomberg Law website.
