PTAB Denies Motion for Pro Hac Vice Admission

Posted On: Nov. 8, 2012   By: Scott A. McKeown
Pro Hac VicePTAB Issues Decision Denying Appearance of Non-registered Practitioner

Non-registered practitioners may, in limited circumstances, be permitted to appear before the Patent Trial & Appeal Board on a pro hac vice basis. 37 C.F.R § 42.10(c). Last week, I pointed out the expanded panel order of the PTAB in IPR2013-00010 (order here), which outlined the base qualifications of potentially qualified attorneys.

Tuesday’s decision in CBM2011-00001 demonstrates the depth of the PTAB’s analysis relative to these base qualifications. In yesterday’s decision the application for pro hac vice admission was denied (here).
