Judge Andrews denies motion seeking permission to use confidential discovery information in inter partes review proceeding.

In a recent order, Judge Richard G. Andrews denied a motion seeking permission to use confidential discovery information obtained in the district court litigation before the PTAB in an inter partes review proceeding.  Callwave Commc’ns LLC v. AT&T Mobility LLC, et al., C.A. Nos. 12-1701-RGA, 12-1702-RGA, 12-1703-RGA (D. Del. Feb. 19, 2015).  As Judge Andrews explained, “my view is that discovery before the PTAB is an issue for the PTAB.  Any confidentiality issues, if discovery is permitted, can be resolved at the same time by the PTAB.”
