“The term ‘patent troll’ may operate as a moral panic in a way that is detrimental to reasoned analysis and consideration of the root problems related to the issue of abusive patent litigation tactics,” Lee wrote in a law review article. Given the nature of the term and the negative way it has been used in news articles, he concluded that it would be prejudicial in the context of a patent trial.

To be sure, judges do not have a monopoly on interpretation of the Constitution. Presidents (and governors) have an independent responsibility to construe the Constitution when deciding whether to sign a bill (as Gov. Pritzker did in this case) or grant a pardon.

Though other experiments also showed that theorists had overestimated the amount of neutrinos produced by a reactor, the new STEREO paper has smaller uncertainties and wraps the argument up in one tidy package, said Bryce Littlejohn, a neutrino physicist at Illinois Tech. “As opposed to a watershed moment, I see it as a nice summation of all the things we’ve learned.”
