The appeal to the Federal Circuit would be an option if a motion to stay pending the CBM review is denied

Versata Software, Inc. v. Callidus Software, Inc.

November 20, 2014

Panel: Chen, Mayer, and Linn. Opinion by Chen.

Summary:

Callidus appealed from the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware’s denial of a stay pending the PTO’s CBM review of the patents-in-suit.  The Federal Circuit used a four factor test set forth in AIA §18(b) to hold that each factor strongly favors a stay, thereby reversing and remanding with instructions to grant the motion to stay.

본 사건은 피고인 Callidus가 델라웨어주 연방지방법원의 특허재심사 절차 진행 중인 특허 소송에 대한 중지청구(motion to stay) 판결에 불복하여 연방항소법원에 상고한 사건이다.  판결에서 연방항소법원은 18(b)조에 있는 4가지 요소 모두 현 소송 진행상황상 미 특허청의 특허재심사 절차 (CBM) 결과를 기다리는 것이 타당하다고 판결하였다.  따라서, 연방항소법원은 개정 특허법 18(b)조에 의거하여 연방지방법원의 중지청구 판결을 번복하였다.

Elimination of false marking actions does not violate the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution

Brooks v. Dunlop Manufacturing

December 3, 2012

Panel:  Newman, Prost, Moore.  Opinion by Prost.

Procedural Summary

Lawyer Brooks sued Dunlop under 35 U.S.C. § 292 for falsely marking a guitar string winder with the number of a patent that had both expired and been found invalid.  During the pendency of the law suit, Congress passed the America Invents Act (AIA) that, inter alia, eliminated false marking actions, except under very limited circumstances.

The trial judge therefore dismissed Brooks’ case, despite Brooks’ argument that the AIA’s elimination of false marking cases violated the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  On appeal, the CAFC agreed with the trial judge and therefore affirmed his dismissal of the case.
