Supreme Court Corner - Q3 2014

Holding: In a unanimous opinion authored by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Court held that the Federal Circuit's indefiniteness standard bred "lower court confusion" because it "lack[ed] the precision 112, 2" demands. The Federal Circuit has consistently held that 112, 2 of the Patent Act, requiring that patent claims particularly point out and distinctly claim the subject matter of the invention, is satisfied, and a claim is not invalid as indefinite, so long as the claim is "amenable to construction," and is not "insolubly ambiguous."

Half the Country's Attorneys General Ask Supreme Court to Decide Marriage Equality

Attorneys general from 32 states have asked the nation's highest court to determine, once and for all, if same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, the Associated Press reports. Top legal officials from 15 states that have already established marriage equality - and 17 states that have yet to do so - filed a pair of amici curiae, or friend-of-the-court briefs Friday, asking the Supreme Court to review three cases currently pending before the court, regarding same-sex marriage in Virginia, Utah, and Oklahoma.
