Customedia Technologies, LLC v. Dish Network Corp.

Appointments Clause Challenge to CBM Decision Waived If Not Briefed

Customedia Technologies, LLC v. Dish Network Corp., No. 19-1001, __ F.3d __, 2019 WL ___ (Fed. Cir. Nov. 1, 2019) (per curiam) (PTAB) (3 of 5 stars)

Fed Cir denies motion to vacate CBM written decision in view of Arthrex, No. 2018-2140, slip op. (Fed. Cir. Oct. 31, 2019). Movant-patent owner Customedia forfeited any relief on Arthrex-type grounds (i.e., asserting an Appointments Clause challenge to the PTAB panel issuing the decision) by not including it in its opening brief. Appointments Clause challenges are not jurisdictional, and may be waived, and the opinion cites Island Creek Coal, 910 F.3d 254 (6th Cir. 2018), and Turned Bros., 757 F. App’x 697 (10th Cir. 2018).
