  • Athena Tells SCOTUS That Mayo’s Key Argument “Collapses” Under Federal Circuit Split

    Athena Diagnostics today filed its reply brief to Mayo Collaborative Services at the Supreme Court in the closely-watched petition asking the High Court to clarify U.S. patent eligibility law. The reply reiterates the points made in Athena’s petition for certiorari and dismisses Mayo’s argument in November that “any further action regarding the patentability of medical diagnostic claims such as Athena’s that employ conventional, known techniques should and does rest with Congress.” The reply…

  • Solicitor General Recommends Against Cert in Vanda, Perhaps Bolstering Athena’s Bid for Review

Instead, the High Court should grant…
