Two patent circumstances denied certiorari at present:
- GS Cleantech Corporation, et al. v. Adkins Energy LLC, et al., No. 20-769 (Standard of assessment when interesting a difficulty selected abstract judgment that later served as the premise for an inequitable conduct discovering).
- adidas AG v. Nike, Inc., No. 20-728 (are PTAB judges principal officers?)
The adidas resolution confused me a bit – the courtroom has held over different circumstances on the identical query awaiting the result in Arthrex that’s set for Oral arguments on March 1, 2021. Nike’s patents are challenged. U.S. Patent No. 7,814,598 and No. 8,266,749. The claims seem like broadly directed to creating a shoe-upper from material made in a round knitting machine.
