SAS Institute, Inc. v. Complementsoft, LLC

No En Banc Rehearing for Case Challenging PTAB Partial IPR Institutions

SAS Institute, Inc. v. Complementsoft, LLC, (Fed. Cir. Nov. 7, 2016) (per curiam (Newman dissenting)) (PTAB) (2 of 5 stars)

Fed Cir denies petitions for panel rehearing and rehearing en banc. The panel opinion, 825 F.3d 1341 (Fed. Cir. June 10, 2016) (summary attached), stands; mandate will issue shortly.

Dissent: Judge Newman criticizes the PTAB’s practice of, in some cases, choosing to decide some, but not all, of the claims challenged in an IPR petition. In her view, such practice is inconsistent with the AIA, and she would have granted the petition for rehearing en banc so as to fully determine the issue.
