Hearing on Stay of USPTO Rules Set for October 31 before Judge Caheris in Alexandria
- Glaxo's opposition to the USPTO's motion for continuance
- Order granting the USPTO's motion
- Order consolidating cases
- USPTO Brief in support of Motion to strike declaration of former USPTO Commissioner Harry F. Manbeck, Jr. in support of Glaxo's motion for a preliminary injunction, also docketed for October 31.
The Practising Law Institute's John White will be attending the hearing and providing "near real time updates throughout the day" to PLI's Patent Practice Center blog, which notes that AIPLA, IBM, and ScanDisk have stepped in to support Glaxo.
"Whatever happens, it seems to me that the relationship between the USPTO and practitioners is profoundly unhealthy at the moment," adds Intellectual Asset Magazine editor Joff Wild in his IAM Blog. "That cannot be good for anyone who is interested in the future of the US patent system."
