Intelligent Bio-Systems, Inc. v. Illumina Cambridge Limited, Case IPR2013-00324 (Nov. 21, 2013) (Paper 19)

Takeaway: The Board has broad discretion to deny “follow-on” petitions. The Board will not institute a follow-on petition that presents “the same or substantially the same prior art or argument” as a first petition by the same petitioner simply because the follow-on petition relies on a new prior art reference that the petitioner discovered only after filing the first petition.
