Marc Brown was quoted in the September 24 issue of the Los Angeles Daily Journal in the article, "Advise and Dissent." This article addressed scientific litigation in which the use of technical advisers is done in the judges cambers, behind closed doors. Mr. Brown commented "any time a judge is advised by someone in private, the lawyers get nervous because they have less control." Mr. Brown continued "such appointments could prove particularly critical in patent cases, where there's a high premium placed on a technical expert's opinion. The problem is that many people with technical background apply a much higher standard of what can and cannot be patented than the law requires. The party seeking to invalidate a patent may benefit from the technical expert."
