PLI Program to Focus on the State of the PTAB

This coming Monday, April 13th, the Practising Law Institute (PLI) will host a one-hour briefing at 3PM(EST) entitled: COVID-19 and PTAB Recalibration — Virtual Trials and Evolving Agency Workflows. (Register here).  I am pleased to once again team with Rob Sterne of Sterne Kessler Goldstein on this timely PLI briefing.

The briefing will explore the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on established AIA trial practices and strategies, particularly the new normal of video hearings and telephonic cross-examinations.  The briefing will also address how these practice adaptations have impacted trial strategies.  Additional topics will include recent developments in discretionary denials, Arthrex remands, and the impact of the Federal Circuit’s reversal of a decision of the PTAB’s Precedential Opinion Panel (POP).  Q&A will also be provided.
