Matthew Dowd files Amicus Brief in Athena Diagnostics v. Mayo Collaborative

Matthew Dowd filed an amicus brief in Athena Diagnostics v. Mayo Collaborative before the Federal Circuit on behalf of ten law professors. The amicus brief argued that lower courts and the PTO have misunderstood the Mayo-Alice test in a way that have created indeterminate and overly restrictive doctrine on patent ineligibility under § 101. Ultimately the Federal Circuit affirmed the lower court’s decision that methods for diagnosing neurological disorders were ineligible under § 101.
