General Electric Co. v. Raytheon Technologies Corporation, fka United Technologies Corporation, Case No. 19-1012.

On February 24, 2020, we reported on GE’s petition for certiorari to the Supreme Court. The petition sought review of the Federal Circuit’s doctrine on Article III standing for petitioners to appeal IPR decisions, which essentially required a possibility of an infringement suit against the petitioner. The petition was based in large part on Federal Circuit Judge Todd Hughes’ views that the Federal Circuit applied too strict a standard.

On May 26, 2020, the Supreme Court denied the petition for certiorari.
