Success Rates of Motions to Stay Pending IPR and CBM Review Declining Slightly
Success rates of motions to stay pending petitions for inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method review (CBM) have declined slightly over the past several years. In 2013, district courts ruled on 103 such motions and granted about 50%. In 2014 the number of motions increased to 245 but the success rate dropped to 41%. In 2015, district courts have ruled on 39 motions so far, with a success rate of just 38.5%. If the 2015 rates continue, we may see as many as 297 rulings with 153 motions granted.
