University of Utah v. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft

(United States Federal Circuit) – In suit to correct inventorship of the “Tuschl Patents,” the district court’s denial of defendants’ motion to dismiss is affirmed, where: 1) the district court did not err in ruling that this is not a dispute between States falling within the exclusive original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court; 2) plaintiff was free to choose between filing this suit in the Supreme Court and filing in federal district court; and 3) the University of Massachusetts is not an indispensable party.
