Bond Files Supreme Court Amicus Brief on Behalf of Law Professors in Patent Case

February 10, 2023

(Buffalo, NY): Bond, Schoeneck & King’s intellectual property (IP) practice supported IP law professors Joshua D. Sarnoff, Sharon K. Sandeen and Ana Santos Rutschman in the filing of a merits stage amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case Amgen v. Sanofi, No. 21-757. The Court considered “whether enablement is governed by the statutory requirement that the specification teach those skilled in the art to ‘make and use’ the claimed invention, 35 U.S.C. § 112, or whether it must instead enable those skilled in the art ‘to reach the full scope of claimed embodiments’ without undue experimentation.” The professors submitted the amicus brief to better explain the historical and policy context of existing patent law doctrines and to contribute to patent law and policy on this important issue before the Court.

Jeremy Oczek, chair of Bond’s IP practice, who is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, acted as counsel of record for the law professors.
