US Inventor Tells 5th Circ. It Can Sue Over PTAB Fintiv Policy (Law360.com – November 29, 2021 – must be a subscriber)
US Inventor has told the Fifth Circuit that U.S. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap wrongly concluded the group lacked standing to challenge Patent Trial and Appeal Board precedent allowing the board to deny patent reviews when there is co-pending district court litigation.
“The [U.S. Patent and Trademark Office] denied Appellants any voice in determining the procedures that will make or break their livelihood, and further denied Appellants any mechanism for ensuring that the procedures will not be changed at a moment’s notice. That this deprivation is unlawful cannot be denied,” the brief said.
