The growing COVID-19 crisis has upended established AIA trial practices and strategies. Video hearings and telephonic cross-examinations are suddenly the norm.  As a stakeholder, how do these practice adaptations impact strategy, and what are the best practices in this new virtual trial environment? At the same time, the agency continues to see Arthrex remands, and the Federal Circuit has now devalued the decisions of its Precedential Opinion Panel (POP). What is next for PTAB precedent, and where are AIA trials headed in 2020?

Please join Scott A. McKeown of Ropes & Gray LLP and Robert Greene Sterne of Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox, P.L.L.C. as they:

  • Examine evolving virtual trial practices to assess potential stakeholder impact
  • Discuss where does the agency stand after Arthrex
  • Address what does Windy City mean for the Precedential Opinion Panel (POP)
  • Consider what additional changes are in store for 2020

All PTAB stakeholders will find this briefing timely and helpful.
