Partner Christopher Kise was quoted in a Law360 article, “High Court Rules AIA Reviews Are Constitutional,” about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling Tuesday that America Invents Act reviews do not violate the U.S. Constitution and that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board has the authority to invalidate patents.
Kise, who represented Greene’s Energy, the prevailing party, called the decision “truly great news” for American business and industry. “Actual innovators and productive businesses such as Greene’s Energy can now rest assured this important facet of our system will be retained, and the burden imposed by non-practicing entities will be minimized,” he said.
