In a judgment issued on April 7, 2016, the IP Court held that if the evidence provided by the plaintiff in an invalidation petition before the TIPO is insufficient to render the patent at issue invalid, the plaintiff may still submit additional evidence in a subsequent administrative action before the IP Court.  If the IP Court takes into account the additional evidence and finds the patent to be invalid, the IP Court should render a judgement in favor of the plaintiff.  However, if the litigation proceeding is delayed due to the submission of such additional evidence and the delay may be attributed to the plaintiff, the court should order such party to bear one-half of the litigation expenses based on the principle of equity.
