StrikeForce's Patent Appeal Decision
EDISON, N.J., February 20, 2019 (Newswire.com) - StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (SFORQB: SFOR) – announces its Patent Appeal decision yesterday. We decided, with our lawyers, to continue the appeal and our decision will be based on the following, for which we don't have a decision as of today, but should have one soon. The decision is based on the following:
Yesterday, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued what is called a “Rule 36” decision, affirming the district court’s order in StrikeForce v. SecureAuth, dismissing StrikeForce’s lawsuit on the grounds of 35 U.S.C. § 101, a statute that concerns what types of inventions are patentable. Because it issued a “Rule 36” decision, the Federal Circuit panel was not required to explain its reasoning, beyond merely saying that all three judges on the panel agree that the district court should be affirmed. We obviously disagree with the panel’s ruling, and are disappointed in the outcome. We are currently considering our options, among which are: (1) asking the panel to rehear the case; (2) asking the entire Federal Circuit (including all twelve active judges on the court, and not just this panel of three judges) to rehear the case; or (3) petitioning the United States Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari.
Thank you for all of your support and when we know what is next, we will announce it to you all.
