Klarquist Secures Another PTAB Win for Microsoft

Published June 27, 2017

Microsoft prevailed as the petitioner over Smart Skins in an inter partes review decision involving a mobile device cover with attached peripherals. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board ruled all six claims under review unpatentable as obvious.

The Board held that the interrelated teachings of two prior art patents, made obvious the challenged patent claims.

Microsoft was represented by Klarquist attorneys John D. Vandenberg and Todd M. Siegel.
