To the extent that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board did not provide an explanation for its obviousness rejection of 13 claims of a Securus patent on a system and method for reviewing monitored conversations and identifying items of interest, the ruling was vacated and remanded by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. To the extent that the Board provided a reasoned explanation for its obviousness rejection of the remaining 23 claims, the ruling was affirmed (Securus Technologies, Inc. v. Global Tel*Link Corp., April 25, 2017, Chen, R.).
