Judge Gilstrap sua sponte stayed this case – now in the postverdict briefing stage – until the ultimate resolution of each of the re-examination proceedings, noting that all claims at issue in the case are covered by multiple grounds of review in the Patent Office, with some already finally rejected, and resolution expected as early as the spring of 2023. “This is a case specific determination by the Court,” Judge Gilstrap wrote, “and is limited to these particular facts and circumstances.”
