Wegner Quoted on Hyatt v. Doll

19 August 2009 The National Law Journal News
Foley Partner Harold Wegner was quoted in an article titled “Federal Circuit Ruling Throws Doubt on Patent Appeals to Other Courts” in the August 19, 2009 issue of The National Law Journal. Wegner discusses the patent bar debate on whether appealing patent office rulings to district courts is viable in the wake of Hyatt v. Doll, noting that appeals to the D.C. federal court are relatively rare but useful when a patent filer or lawyer uncovers new evidence to support the rejected patent.
