Patent Litigation Expert Witnesses

What areas may patent litigation expert witnesses opine on?  They may consult and testify on patent infringement, patented components, patent valuations, and more. In FIRST QUALITY BABY PRODUCTS, LLC, v. KIMBERLY-CLARK WORLDWIDE, INC., the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ruled for the petitioner that First Quality proved all challenged claims 15-22 of the ’876 patent are unpatentable.

Case IPR2014-00169 Patent 8,579,876 B2

Petitioner has demonstrated, by a preponderance of the evidence, that claims 15–20 and 22 of the ’876 patent are unpatentable under 35 U.S.C. § 103 as obvious over Widlund and Toyo, and that claim 21 is unpatentable under 35 U.S.C. § 103 as obvious over Widlund , Toyo, and Kuske.

Accordingly, it is ORDERED that claims 15–22 of U.S. Patent No. 8,579,876 B2 are unpatentable; FURTHER ORDERED that Patent Owner’s Motion to Exclude is dismissed; and FURTHER ORDERED that, because this is a final written decision, parties to the proceeding seeking judicial review of the decision must comply with the notice and service requirements of 37 C.F.R. § 90.2.
