reexamination

The process by which the USPTO conducts an examination of a patent after it has issued, undertaken upon written request by a member of the public who establishes that there is a reasonable likelihood that the requester would prevail with respect to at least 1 of the claims challenged in the request.  The pre-AIA standard was that there be “substantial new questions of patentability”  presented as to the previously issued patent.  Sometimes abbreviated “RE.”
