Bill Oldach, a partner in the Vorys Washington, D.C. office and a member of the litigation group, was featured in a Law360 story regarding a U.S. Supreme Court decision that found that the Federal Circuit's long-standing rule that all district court claim construction rulings must be reviewed anew on appeal is not valid.  According to Oldach, the decision was significant.

The story includes this quote from Oldach:

“The Supreme Court decision today should provide greater certainty to claimed construction decisions by district courts. In recent years, it has often been the view of patent litigators that such decisions had a 50-50 chance of being overturned by the Federal Circuit. That should now begin to change.”
