Supreme Court decides Gunn v. Minton

In Gunn v. Minton , the US Supreme Court reversed the Texas Supreme Court.

The question:

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.
