DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT IN PATENT CASES FOR DECLARATORY JUDGMENT OF INVALIDITY
a) Invalidity Contentions If No Claim of Infringement. In all cases in which a party files a complaint or other pleading seeking a declaratory judgment that a patent is invalid Dist. Idaho Loc. Patent R. 3.1 and 3.2 shall not apply unless and until a claim for patent infringement is made by a party. If the Defendant does not assert a claim for patent infringement in its answer to the complaint, no later than 14 days after the Defendant serves its answer, or 14 days after the initial scheduling conference, whichever is later, the party seeking a declaratory judgment of invalidity shall serve upon each opposing party its Invalidity Contentions that conform to Dist. Idaho Loc. Patent R. 3.3 and produce or make available for inspection and copying the documents described in Dist. Idaho Loc. Patent R. 3.4.
b) Inapplicability of Rule. This Dist. Idaho Loc. Patent R. 3.5 shall not apply to cases in which a request for a declaratory judgment that a patent is invalid is filed in response to a complaint for infringement of the same patent.
