Fitzpatrick Obtains Final Written Decisions in Four Inter Partes Reviews Invalidating Two U.S. Patents

In decisions issued on March 11, 2016 and March 17, 2016, Fitzpatrick prevailed in four inter partes review proceedings, and succeeded in obtaining Final Written Decisions invalidating all claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,523,063 and 8,540,152 on behalf of its client Askeladden LLC. The challenged patents relate to loyalty rewards programs. The PTAB found that Askeladden had shown by a preponderance of the evidence that all of the challenged claims were invalid under obviousness.

The Fitzpatrick attorneys representing Askeladden are partner Justin Oliver and associates Erin Austin, Josh Calabro, David Leege, Margaret Scales and Stephen Yam.
