About a month ago we posted an article on the dismissal of Consumer Watchdog’s appeal at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit following a loss at the USPTO in an inter partes reexamination. Consumer Watchdog, Inc. had petitioned the U.S. Patent Office to review a stem cell patent owned by the Wisconsin Alumnae Research Foundation (WARF). A reexamination was conducted but the patent survived the challenge. Consumer Watchdog then appealed the government’s refusal to invalidate the WARF patent.
