Bloomberg Law writes, “The U.S. Supreme Court may be preparing to close an avenue for patent owners to challenge Patent Trial and Appeal Board decisions—a move attorneys say likely would lead to limits on other Federal Circuit reviews. The question before the justices in Thryv Inc. v. Click-To-Call Technologies LP is whether patent owners can argue on appeal that the PTAB wrongly reviewed a patent because a challenge wasn’t filed in time.”
