Writing with fellow patent experts, Professors Bernard Chao and Timothy Holbrook of the University of Denver School of Law and Professor Mark A. Lemley of Stanford Law School, Professor Jacob Sherkow submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The brief is written in response to the decision made by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) in a case involving Xencor Inc. In their previous decision, PTAB rejected a patent claim from Xencor, a decision Sherkow and his co-authors describe as "wrong on the law and wrong on the science." The amicus brief supports Xencor's claim and encourages the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to reverse the decision from PTAB.
