Deputy Chief Judge Jackie Bonilla and Lead Judge Jessica Kaiser will address a recent notice of proposed rulemaking on the burden of persuasion in motion to amend practice; the status of the motion to amend pilot program; and use of reexam proceedings and reissue applications as an alternative way to secure amended claims.
