Judge Sleet Imposes "Limit of 10 Disputed Terms Per Patent" Rule

The court struck the parties' join claim construction chart and ordered them to file an amended version. "The parties have submitted for construction 19 terms from [the patent-in-suit]. Although disinclined to do so in the past, the court -- regrettably -- will impose a limit of 10 disputed terms per patent for claim construction in this and all future patent actions."
