Hey Don,

So 22 amicus briefs filed in support of the petitioner, Sequenom, and none filed in support of the respondents. Pretty hard for SCOTUS to fail to notice that disparity.


Remember, justice is blind.

Or at least, based on their patent jurisprudence the last few years, the justices are blind.

I see no reason for optimism.

I am reminded of the lyrics:

He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

Of course, there is a critical difference. Unlike Lady Justice who really does NOT have a point of view, our Supreme Court very much has a point of view that they themselves are trying to scriven into the statutory law that is patent law.

Somebody needs to point THAT out to the Supreme Court. Any children around willing to tell the Emperors that they are parading around in the buff?
