Q: Is this a matter for US Supreme Court?

I have a situation where I formed a contract by payment of ongoing fees with a US government department and for that contract I was lead to believe I would have legal rights protecting my property under US law given by U.S. Congress which has not happened, if things happened a certain way.

Does anyone know who should be the one adjudicating my case now when I have already argued it to the Federal Courts. Should it be a Supreme Court matter?

A: I have worked with patents for a long time. I cannot think of any government agency that accepts money from an individual for protecting intellectual property beyond the normal processes of filing for a patent, trademark, or copyright.

You need to talk with an attorney that can review all the relevant paperwork to ensure that you were indeed working with a government agency rather than someone pretending to be a government agency. There are many companies that try to swindle inventors.

Good Luck.
