SCOTUS and PTAB: As we are sure you know, the Supreme Court issued SAS Institute and Oil States. The PTAB survived, but its procedures are changing. The Office has issued Guidance on the Impact of SAS Institute on AIA Trial Proceedings, and the PTAB is holding a free “Chat with the Chief” webinar on Monday, April 30 from noon to 1 pm ET to discuss the Supreme Court’s decisions and its impact on the PTAB.
