On March 27, 2018, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board fully denied institution of an inter partes review challenge brought by Unified Patents against Noroozi PC’s client, Realtime Data. Citing numerous “deficiencies” in the Unified Patents petition, the Board found the petition inadequate to warrant further consideration. The patent at issue, U.S. Patent 8,717,204, is directed to accelerated transmission of data using data compression and decompression.
To date, Noroozi PC has fully avoided institution in 80% of PTAB trials (16 of 20) when retained at the outset. The firm’s non-institution rate is 2.5x higher than the average non-institution rate for PTAB challenges involving electrical/computer patents (32%), according to statistics published by the Patent Office.
