For our weekly SoCal IP Institute meeting on Monday, March 20, 2017, we will discuss the following:

Nidec Motor Corporation v. Zhongshan Broad Ocean Motor Co. Ltd., et. al (Fed. Cir. Mar. 14, 2017) (available here).  Nidec appealed the PTAB’s decision finding one of its claims anticipated in an IPR proceeding. The Federal Circuit reversed the PTAB’s ruling finding that the PTAB’s decision was not supported by substantial evidence.

Bayer Cropscience AG, v. Dow Agrosciences, LLC (Fed. Cir. March 17, 2017)  (available here).  The district court awarded attorney fees to Dow. Bayer appealed and the Federal Circuit affirmed the district court’s ruling.

All are invited to join us on Monday, March 20, 2017, at noon in our Westlake Village office. This activity is approved for 1 hour of MCLE credit. If you will be joining us, please RSVP to Elisha Manzur by 9 am Monday morning.
