« Court Report | Main | A Sea Change for IPRs? -- Part II »

June 09, 2015


What good is allowing affidavits from either side if neither side can conduct cross-examination?

Head Scratcher, this is about the filing of the initial petition pleading papers requesting [and any objecting to] initiation of an IPR before any IPR is actually initiated. If an IPR is actually initiated [and quite a few are not] then indeed there is affidavit cross-examination opportunity.

Any thought going towards the request for IPR's initiated by hedge funds with the intent to manipulate stock prices?

Paul F. Morgan,

Would you care to comment on the fact that the initiation itself of an IPR (unchallengeable, by the way) is itself a taking of certain portions of a duly granted property right?
