If a patent in the process of inter partes reexamination is or becomes involved in
an interference or trial before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the Director may
suspend the inter partes reexamination, interference, or trial. The Director will not consider a request to suspend an interference or trial unless
a motion under § 41.121(a)(3) of this title to suspend the interference or trial has been presented to, and denied
by, an administrative patent judge and the request is filed within ten (10) days of
a decision by an administrative patent judge denying the motion for suspension or
such other time as the administrative patent judge may set.
