A Claim Construction occurs when a court or administrative agency defines or gives meaning to a patent claim or term in a Patent Case. In district court Patent Cases, Claim Constructions may occur in special orders called “Claim Construction Order” or “Markman Order,” but they may also occur in orders on motions for summary judgment, motions for judgment as a matter of law, motions for judgment on the pleadings, and many others. Docket Navigator records Claim Constructions as a group of data consisting of (i) the term or phrase being construed, (ii) the definition (construction), and (iii) the patent number.
