Today (June 20, 2011), the Supreme Court granted Mayo's petition for certiorari in Prometheus Laboratories, Inc. v. Mayo Collaborative Services, which means that the Supreme Court will review the Federal Circuit decision that upheld the patent-eligibility of Prometheus' personalized medicine claims against a Bilski-type challenge. As I wrote last week, it will be interesting to see if Justice Breyer will be able to use this case to resurrect the anti-patent views he expressed in his opinion dissenting from the GVR in Laboratory Corp. of America Holdings v. Metabolite Laboratories, Inc.
