Kenneth Weatherwax, co-managing partner at Lowenstein & Weatherwax LLP, was quoted in an article published by Law360 on June 26, 2019 regarding the Supreme Court’s grant of a writ of certiorari that day in Dex Media, Inc. v. Click-to-Call.  The Justices granted certiorari to consider the first question presented in the petition for certiorari, namely, “Whether 35 U.S.C. § 314(d) permits appeal of the PTAB’s decision to institute an inter partes review upon finding that § 315(b)’s time bar did not apply.”  Mr. Weatherwax noted in his quoted comments that if the justices ultimately reverse the Federal Circuit’s decision to hear the case, “the Federal Circuit will be less in the business of testing decisions to deny or to grant institution” in the future.  He also noted that the grant of certiorari indicated rising interest on the Court in the extent to which there should be “a broad view of what’s appealable” in agency decisions.  The article may be accessed (subscription required) at this link.
