Supreme Court decides Gunn v. Minton
Federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over cases “arising under any Act of Congress relating to patents.” 28 U. S. C. §1338(a). The question presented is whether a state law claim alleging legal malpractice in the handling of a patent case must be brought in federal court.
The answer is no.
Bottom line: 355 S. W. 3d 634, reversed and remanded.
