The Question Presented, in the wake Nautilus, Inc. v. Biosig Instruments, Inc.,134 S.Ct. 2120 (2014), asks “[w]hether factual findings underlying a district court’s determination on the definiteness of a patent claim under the Patent Act, 35 U.S.C. 112, like a district court’s factual findings underlying construction of a patent claim, are subject to appellate review only for clear error or substantial evidence rather than de novo review.”
