Committee on Appeals from the PTAB

Committee on Appeals from the PTAB

This committee relates to Federal Circuit and Supreme Court review of decisions by the PTAB, including appeals from ex parte appeals, reexaminations, IPR/CBM/PGR trials, derivations, and interferences. It collects and organizes appellate opinions and statistics for cases originating at the PTAB and proposes to the Board of Directors initiatives related to appellate review of PTAB decisions and comments on amicus briefs filed on behalf of the Association. This committee is also expected to coordinate with other committees to help with substantive communications, programs, and other needs that implicate appeals from the PTAB.
