Verify Smart Corp. v. Askeladden, LLC,
No. 19-1076, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
Represent Appellant Verify Smart Corp. in a fully-briefed appeal pending in the Federal Circuit challenging a Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) decision rendered in favor of Askeladden LLC who Verify alleges was statutorily precluded from bringing its action because it is owned and controlled by Bank of America, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. who had separately released all claims they had against Verify as part of settlements of two different patent infringement actions Verify had previously brought against them. The appeal also raises constitutional issues regarding the composition and powers of the PTAB.
