Amending Dependent Claims — Listing Doesn’t Count Toward Page Limits


In Micro Motion, Inc. v. Invensys System, Inc., IPR2014-00179, Paper 22, IPR2014-00167, Page 24  (August 11, 2014), the Board informed the patent owner that it must address each proposed substitute independent claim in the Motion to Amend, itself, but that it may provide a claim listing that includes proposed substitute dependent claims that only are amended to depend from each new, substitute independent claim. The Board indicated that such a claim listing does not count towards the fifteen page limit for a Motion to Amend.
