August 6, 2013 The Board Stays Reexamination Pending Completing of IPR

On August 6, 2013, the Board stayed Reexamination 90/012,669 on U.S. Patent No. 6,624,843, pending the completion of IPR2013-00432 on the same patent.  See Lumondi Inc. v. Lennon Image Technologies LLC, IPR2013-00432, Paper 7 (August 6, 2013).  Although the Board said that it will not ordinarily stay a reexamination because, in the absence of good cause, reexaminations are conducted with special dispatch, in fact the Board has routinely stayed rexamiantions in favor of IPRs where the same claims are at issue.
