Tonight, I recommend reading UC Berkeley law student Jonathan Tamimi's article, Breaking Bad Patents: The Formula for Quick, Inexpensive Resolution of Patent Validity. The 60-page article is quite comprehensive, and has loads of data and tables regarding the results obtained in the America Invents Act trials.
In the article: "Part I discusses the historical background of the AIA. Part II navigates the AIA’s updated and expanded procedures for reexamining patent validity at the PTO. The first section of Part II details the advantages of challenging patent validity via AIA reviews relative to district court litigation. The second section presents the limitations and potential drawbacks of using AIA reviews. The third section discusses additional considerations for potential petitioners. Part III concludes with a brief summary of issues surrounding AIA reviews."
