Judge Gregory M. Sleet recently denied a motion to stay pending ex parte reexamination in Polar Electro OY v. Suunto OY, et al., C.A. No. 11-1100-GMS (D. Del. Oct. 31, 2016). Judge Sleet explained that a review of Public Pair indicated that the PTO withdrew previous rejections of the claims subject to the ex parte reexamination and allowed newly presented claims. As a result, prosecution on the merits was now closed, and the Court therefore exercised its discretion to deny the motion to stay.
