FC Decides Myriad Rehearing

The FC has decided the rehearing of the Myriad case.
Judges Lourie and Moore have reiterated their positions in FC Myriad I, while Judge Bryson appears to have softened his opposition somewhat.
The decision is here.

Myriad to be Decided Today

According to Hal Wegner, patent law expert, the decision in the FC rehearing of the Myriad case is due out today.  No matter which way it goes, it is very likely to be appealed to the SCOTUS.  The only scenario in which this may not happen is if the Myriad company heeds appeals by the patent blogosphere to drop the case.   We shall see.
