By Matt Johnson –
On June 29th, the PTO issued an initial protocol for requesting Director review of a PTAB Final Written Decision according to the Supreme Court’s Arthrex decision. This Arthrex protocol is similar to the current procedure for requesting rehearing by the Precedential Opinion Panel, where concurrent with filing a request for rehearing in the E2E system, the requesting party submits an email request to the new Director_PTABDecision_Review@uspto.gov email address, with opposing counsel cc’d.
The Office will discuss this interim procedure in more detail during their next Boardside Chat scheduled for July 1 at 10 AM eastern.
