Charles Macedo and Chandler Sturm to Present Celesq and West LegalEdcenter/Thomson Reuters Webinar on PTAB Administrative Patent Judges and the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution

February 28, 2020

On February 28, partner Charles Macedo and law clerk Chandler Sturm will present a webinar for Celesq and West LegalEdcenter/Thomson Reuters on “PTAB Administrative Patent Judges and the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution.” The program will explore the Federal Circuit’s recent decision in Arthrex, Inc. v. Smith & Nephew, which held that the current statutory structure for appointing Administrative Patent Judges (APJs) to the PTAB violates the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The program will begin with a review of the Appointments Clause, and the appointment and authority of APJs under the AIA. There will then be a discussion regarding the Federal Circuit’s analysis, as well as subsequent decisions in which the Federal Circuit has applied its holding in Arthrex, and what to expect going forward.
