The topic of Austin’s presentation is “Seeking and Avoiding Stays of Litigation Pending Post-AIA Patent Reviews.” Under the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), defendants in in district court litigation are allowed to institute a concurrent trial proceeding before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to review the patentability of claims asserted in litigation. Seeking a stay of litigation pending patent review can be an effective strategy in many cases. However, stays are not automatic, and are often denied.
Austin’s presentation will discuss the statutory and common-law bases for stays pending patent review proceedings before the PTAB. The presentation will also analyze the effectiveness of motions to stay pending patent review and the variety of factors that may help or hurt a litigant’s chances of seeking or avoiding a stay of litigation. Finally, the presentation will offer practical tips for obtaining a successful result.
