Ground Zero: Monday's the Day For Bilski

The Court has voted unanimously to drive patent lawyers crazy.

- Tom Goldstein, SCOTUS "Live" Blog reporting, June 24, 2010 10:21 AM
No Bilski opinion today.  The Chief Justice announced that the Court will have its final opinions on Monday (the 28th) and that will close the Term, with the exception of any remaining orders in pending cases.

The SCOTUS Blog indicates that Stevens "almost certainly has Bilski, which suggests a narrow approach to permitting business method patents but probably not a extremely detailed test."

"suggests a narrow approach"

suggests a poor reconciliation with the broad tenants of wide applicability of the patent call (at least for those who cling to the ANY in the law's 101 mandate).

Peter,

An appropos title what may be coming Monday. Get out the Ouija board and pray hard we don't see any more rhetorical nonsense from SCOTUS. I'm not hopeful at this point.

If nothing else, expect a flood of blog posts about it, then lots more waiting for the first trial court decision (and then Fed Cir opinion) interpreting it.
