Success Rates for Motions to Stay Pending Reexamination

Since early 2008, district courts in the U.S. have ruled on 942 motions to stay pending reexamination. Of those, 538 (57%) were granted and 276 (29%), were denied. During that time, the Northern District of California ruled on 97 motions with a grant rate slightly higher than the national average: 60 (62%) granted and 27 (28%) denied. By contrast, the Eastern District of Texas ruled on 99 such motions, but granted only 39 (39%) while denying 52 (53%). (Note: The number of grants and denials do not include other results such as partial grants or denials, deferred rulings, etc.) This list provides a complete list of orders on motions to stay pending reexam. You may filter by court, judge, date, result, or other criteria using the search filters along the left-hand margin.
