In an inter partes review of a patent owned by Wi-Fi One, LLC (“Wi-Fi”), the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s decision to deny Wi-Fi’s request to conduct discovery into whether Broadcom Corporation’ petition was time-barred under Section 315(b) of the Patent Act was not reviewable, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has held. The court also affirmed the Board’s ruling that the challenged claims of the reviewed patent were invalid as anticipated (Wi-Fi One, LLC v. Broadcom Corp., September 16, 2016, Bryson, W.).
