Google LLC (“Google”) appeals three inter partes review (“IPR”) decisions of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“Board”) concluding that Google had not shown the challenged claims in U.S. Patent Nos. 6,851,115 (“the ’115 patent”) and 7,069,560 (“the ’560 patent”) to be unpatentable. Because the Board failed to resolve fundamental testimonial conflicts in concluding that the relied-upon reference was not prior art, we vacate the decisions and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
