Following inter partes review of several claims of a patent directed to a trigger/seal mechanism for a beverage container, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board properly applied the broadest reasonable in construing a connection limitation disclosed in the challenged claims, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has decided. The Board’s construction was supported by the claims, the specification, and the prosecution history. The PTAB also did not err in finding one claim obvious over a prior art reference (Ignite USA LLC v. CamelBak Products LLC, October 12, 2017, Wallach, E.).
