« EPO Prepares to Roll out New Prior Art Search Disclosure Rules | Main | IPO Files Amicus Brief in AMP v. USPTO »

November 01, 2010


The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) also filed an amicus brief on Friday, in support of neither party, but supporting reversal: http://www.aipla.org/Content/ContentGroups/About_AIPLA1/AIPLA_Reports/20106/AIPLA-Myriad-Amicus-filed.pdf

How can that brief be "in support of neither party" yet urge reversal in favor of Myriad??

Dear Johnny:

The brief does not argue that the patents-in-suit are not invalid, just that the district court's decision was legal error.

But you are correct, Myriad will benefit from reversal.

Thanks for the comment.

Thanks, Karen. We will post on the brief.
