Wednesday, February 10, 2016

2015 brought the first wave of Federal Circuit decisions in appeals from final written decisions in inter partes review and covered business method proceedings.  In its first 55 post-grant appeals, the Federal Circuit affirmed or dismissed 89%, with most being summary affirmances without opinion.

  • Challenges to the PTAB’s decision to institute
  • Claim construction
