Insights: News Kimberlynn Davis and April Abele Isaacson Quoted by Law360 re: "High Court Limit On Patent Challenges To Spur More Fights"


The U.S. Supreme Court's decision narrowing, but not eliminating, a doctrine that prevents inventors from challenging their own patents opens numerous questions about exactly when such attacks are permitted under the court's revised standard, attorneys say.

Although the ruling potentially permits more patent challenges by assignors than had previously been allowed, such challenges will still likely arise infrequently, as patent purchasers typically perform the due diligence needed to avoid the implications of the decision, Kimberlynn Davis and April Abele Isaacson of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP said in emailed comments.
