On January 15, 2016, the Supreme Court of the United States granted certiorari in Cuozzo Speed Technologies, LLC v. Lee, No. 15-446. The Court will address whether the Patent Trial and Appeal Board may construe issued claims according to their broadest reasonable interpretation rather than the plain and ordinary meaning applied in federal district courts. A discussion of the next steps for this case at the Supreme Court can be found on Finnegan’s AIA blog, and a discussion of the Federal Circuit’s en banc Cuozzo opinion can be found here.
