Patent Trial and Appeal Board Affirms Motion for Judgment to Pepper Hamilton Client

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board affirmed that the board correctly granted a motion for judgment to a specialty pharmaceutical company after finding that the claims by the appellant were unpatentable in two drug patent applications covering painkillers due to the patents lacking written descriptions.

The specialty pharmaceutical company was represented by Daniel M. Scolnick, a registered patent attorney with Pepper Hamilton and a member of the firm's Health Sciences Department.
