Terrence P. McMahon was quoted in the August 4 issue of The Recorder in an article regarding the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's removal of U.S. District Judge Manuel Real from a patent infringement case. The Federal Circuit threw out Microsoft's 2006 win over Research Corporation Technologies (RCT), reversing Real's decision declaring RCT's patents unenforceable and tossing his orders that found the patents invalid and non-infringing. Mr. McMahon, who represented RCT before Judge Real, said he was happy to get a new judge on the case. "It was clear that he had a point of view and we disagreed with it – we tried the case and he cut us off at every pass. I've never had something like this in my whole career, and I hope I never do again," he said. "A new day has dawned. Everything that Judge Real did has been erased," he added.
