Bell 'Tolling' Again for PTO: Court Stands Fast on Decision
BioWorld Today Contributing Writer
A federal court has turned down the Patent and Trademark Office's (PTO) request that judges look again at January's ruling on the statutory deadline for legal challenges to patent term adjustments.
In an 18-page opinion, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied the PTO motion to reconsider the rule that the deadline for filing complaints is "tolled" suspended as soon as the patent holder asks the PTO to reconsider its adjustment (i.e., extension) of a patent term.
