Dot Your I’s, Cross Your T’s, Measure Your Font, Count Your Line Spacing

Dynamic Drinkware, LLC v. National Graphics, Inc., IPR2013-00131, Paper 32 (May 2, 2014), the Board expunged the petitioner’s papers that did not comply with Rule 42.6 (37 C.F.R. § 42.6), including by using a 12-point proportional font instead of the 14-point font required by the rule, using an even smaller font in the foot notes, and single spacing (rather than 1.5 line spacing) block quotes.  The Board did give the petitioner five days to submit corrected papers, however.
