While general litigation cases are handled in a district court (first trial), then a court of appeals (second trial), and the Supreme Court (third trial), patent and trademark litigation cases for refusal and invalidation are handled by the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (in the first), then the Patent Court (second trial), and the Supreme Court (third trial), and patent and trademark infringement cases, like general litigation cases, are handled in a district court (first trial), then a court of appeals (second trial), and the Supreme Court (third trial).
Because such trial/litigation cases are difficult for individuals to handle, it is recommended that individuals seek advice from reliable agents with technical expertise.
