Why "no JD's" for a U.S. job?

A thread a while ago asked about the difference between JD degrees and LLB degrees.  Today I noticed a job posting on the main page, job ID EA11911, which specifies "no JDs".
Just wondering what the difference is, and whether a JD is undesirable compared to the other degrees in general, or only within IP.
I'm planning on applying to law schools after finishing my undergrad, and plan to be a patent attorney after finishing.

The advertisement is for an administrative position and they don't want to hire a lawyer to fill the position. There is no intent to distinguish between attorneys with JDs and LLBs. Neither would be welcome to apply.
I'm not sure any accredited US law school still awards LLB degrees.
