Mr. Juo has litigated cases at both the trial and appellate level, including summary judgment, Markman claim construction hearings, and jury trials in several U.S. District Courts, including the Central District of California, and the Northern District of California. Mr. Juo also helped obtain a multi-million dollar award for one of his litigation clients. He has also appeared in several Federal Circuit appeals, including Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. v. SciMed Life Systems, Inc., 261 F.3d 1329 (Fed. Cir. 2001) (winning reversal of adverse claim construction to vacate summary judgment); Medtronic, Inc. v. Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc., 248 F.3d 1303 (Fed. Cir. 2001) (winning affirmance of favorable district court decision); and Origin Medsystems, Inc. v. General Surgical Innovations, Inc., No. 98-1416, 1999 WL 507160 (Fed. Cir. 1999) (successfully overturned adverse summary judgment decision).
His article, “A Prosecution Bar In Patent Litigation Should Be The Exception Rather Than The Rule” (co-authored with David J. Pitman) was cited by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in In re Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas and Total Bank Solutions, LLC, 605 F.3d 1373 (Fed. Cir. 2010) as containing a “comprehensive” review of trial court decisions regarding protective orders involving patent prosecution. And his article, “A Quantum Of Originality In Copyright” (co-authored with Katherine L. McDaniel), was selected for inclusion in the 2010 edition of the annual Thomson Reuters (West) Intellectual Property Law Review as one of the best intellectual property law articles of that past year. Other published articles include “Egyptian Goddess: Rebooting Design Patents And Resurrecting Whitman Saddle” in the Federal Circuit Bar Journal; "Notice That Registered Trademark In The Window?” in the John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law; and "Unauthorized Acts in Declaratory Judgment" in New Matter–the Journal of the Intellectual Property Section of the California Bar.
In April 2013, Mr. Juo led a panel discussion at the Design Patents in the Modern World conference held at Stanford Law School. At the 83rd Annual Meeting of the California State Bar, he co-presented a program entitled “From Batman to Paris Hilton: Design Patents for Aesthetic Attorneys.” Los Angeles Lawyer magazine featured Mr. Juo on the cover of its November 2009 issue for his article, “Eye of the Beholder” concerning design patents.
Mr. Juo volunteers as a moot court judge in the National Entertainment Law Moot Court Competition held annually at Pepperdine University. He also participated as a volunteer attorney settlement officer for unlawful detainer cases at the Los Angeles Superior Court in Torrance.
Mr. Juo earned his J.D. from George Washington University in 1993, and his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Clarkson University in 1989. Mr. Juo is admitted to the bars of California and Virginia, and is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
