Bob Stoll, partner and co-chair of the intellectual property group in Washington, D.C., was quoted in the IPWatchdog article “SAS: When the Patent Office Institutes IPR it Must Decide Patentability of All Challenged Claims.” The article discusses the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) cannot partially institute a petition for inter partes review; rather, when the PTAB institutes an inter partes review it must decide the patentability of all the claims the petitioner has challenged.

Bob said, “It will be interesting to see if petitioner strategies change with respect to the challenges of more claims and how the USPTO will handle the new process mandated by the Court.”
