As noted earlier today, the Supreme Court has granted certiorari in what has become Top Ten No. (2) Cuozzo Speed Technologies LLC v. Lee,Supreme Court No. 15‑446 .  A copy of the new Top Ten List is attached.

The first Question Presented asks whether the Federal Circuit erred in concluding that in an inter partes review post-grant proceeding, the PTAB may construe claims in an issued patent according to the “broadest reasonable interpretation” standard used for ex parte examination and pre-Leahy Smith post grant proceedings versus the claims’ “plain and ordinary meaning”.
