About Judge Timothy B. Dyk
Judge Timothy B. Dyk joined the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 2000. He has authored many notable opinions in patent and trademark law, such as in International Seaway Trading Corp. v. Walgreens Corp. (2009) and In re Spirits International (2009). He is especially well known for learned concurring opinions that more deeply explore the historical and doctrinal contexts of core patent law issues, such as in In re Bilski (2008) and Johnson & Johnston Associates (2002). Judge Dyk’s most recent article “Does the Supreme Court Still Matter?” appeared in the American University Law Review (Vol. 57: 763, 2008). Before President Clinton appointed him to the Federal Circuit, Judge Dyk was the Chair of Jones Day’s Issues & Appeals practice group in Washington, DC. He has taught as an adjunct professor at Yale Law School, University of Virginia Law School, and Georgetown University Law Center. Judge Dyk served as a law clerk to Chief Justice Warren in 1962-63, as well as to Justices Reed and Burton in 1961-62. After two years as a special assistant to Assistant Attorney General Louis Oberdorfer, he was in private practice at Wilmer Cutler & Pickering (1964-1990) and Jones Day (1990-2000).
