On March 30, Global Automakers joined an industry coalition in filing an amici curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the matter of Cuozzo v. Lee. The matter concerns the inter partes review process, whereby the Patent and Trademark Office (“PTO”) initiates a relatively quick and cost-effective method to eliminate bad patents. Specifically, the lawsuit challenges the PTO’s use of the broadest reasonable construction of a challenged patent claim when determining its validity, and the statutory bar on appeals of decisions to institute inter partes review. The industry brief urges the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold these practices.
