New Top Ten No. (2a), “Ariosa II”, Genetic Technologies Ltd. v. Merial L.L.C., __ F.3d __ (Fed. Cir. 2016)(Dyk, J.), joins the Top Ten List as it raises issues now at the Supreme Court on petition in Top Ten No. (2)Sequenom v. Ariosa.

What Happens if Certiorari is Denied in Sequenom v. Ariosa?  Here, the panel has followed the notorious Ariosa panel opinion to deny patent-eligibility to an invention  where “[t]he similarity of claim 1 to the claims evaluated in Mayo and Ariosa requires the conclusion that claim 1 is directed to a law of nature.”

“Ariosa II” is considered at page 10 of the attached Top Ten Patent Cases.
