Summary:
Prof Chien notes that Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, authored the US government's merits brief in Bilski case arguing that Bilski's claim is unpatentable. She reports that "in the last 20 years, every single amicus brief authored by the US Government in a Supreme Court patent case except one predicted the case outcome." Chien writes "If history is any indication, the Supreme Court will almost certainly follow the US Government's lead and rule that the method is unpatentable and likely adopt some of its reasoning as well."
