Charley Macedo to Speak at the November NYIPLA PTAB Committee on Examining Constitutionality Challenges After Arthrex and APJ Compensation

November 2, 2021

Charley Macedo, the co-chair of the NYIPLA PTAB Committee, will speak at the November meeting on "Examining Constitutionality Challenges After Arthrex and APJ Compensation."

In this interactive presentation, the PTAB Committee will be joined by Professor Timothy Hsieh, Assistant Professor of Law at the Oklahoma City University School of Law to the Federal Circuit's October 13, 2021 decision in Mobility Workx, LLC v. Unified Patents, LLC.

Specifically, in its decision, the Federal Circuit examined several constitutionality challenges after Arthrex, including whether the Director’s delegation of his/her responsibility to make final unreviewable institution decisions to the same APJ’s who make the Final Written Decision violates the Administrative Procedures Act and/or the Due Process Clause of the Constitution. 

Professor Hsieh will then discuss the issue of APJ compensation and its ethical implications with PTAB Committee co-chairs Charley Macedo and Ken Adamo and board liaison Rob Rando.
There will be a Q&A session afterward. This event is free to all NYIPLA members and PTAB Committee members. Non-NYIPLA members can join for $30. 1 Ethics CLE credit will be available for attendees. Please remember to re-register for the PTAB Committee if you have not yet done so in the new year.
1.0 credit of NY/NJ ethics CLE is available.
