As many of you know, Alice Corp. filed for certiorari from the Federal Circuit’s en banc decision in CLS Bank v. Alice Corp. The deadline for amicus briefs in support of the petition is October 7, 2013. Trading Technologies will be filing an amicus brief in support, and is looking for additional companies to sign on to their brief. Their brief does not take a position on the merits, but argues that “several important and closely-watched decisions of the Federal Circuit have further confused the law in this area,” and that “market participants are faced with a legal landscape that is uncertain and unmanageable.”
Copies of their brief and their explanatory cover letter are linked below.
