U.S. Supreme Court Gives Patent Holders More Time to Sue

The U.S. Supreme Court, ruling in a case involving adult diapers, gave some patent holders more time to file infringement lawsuits.

The 7-1 ruling is a victory for a Svenska Cellulosa AB unit in its suit against First Quality Products Inc., a smaller competitor that allegedly copied a patented diaper design.

Two lower courts had largely sided with First Quality, saying SCA’s Tena unit had waited too long to sue.
