In Integrated Global Concepts, Inc. v. Advanced Messaging Technologies, Inc., 2014-01028, Paper 13, (December 22, 2014) the Board declined to institute inter partes review of claims 1–12, 21–24, 26–35 (the “challenged claims”) of U.S. Patent No. 6,020,980. The Board noted that Petitioner’s challenge of claims 1, 22, and 26 is based upon substantially the same prior art and arguments that were before the Office in the ex parte reexamination of the ’980 patent—Control No. 90/012,650—that resulted in Ex Parte Reexamination Certificate (9670th) issued May 20, 2013 (Ex. 1002). Accordingly, the Board exercised its discretion to decline to institute inter partes review.
