Anyone have a relevant association with this court? I am strongly considering it b/c it's a patent pilot district and would be a great credential for a patent litigator right after law school.

If you want patent experience, you should clerk in a district that is known for having a heavy patent caseload; however, heavy patent caseload ≠ patent pilot district. Patent heavy districts are places like NDCA, DDel, EDTX, WDWI, EDVA, DNJ (I think for pharma), etc.
