HTIA Submits Amicus Brief in United States. v. Arthrex
On December 3, HTIA filed an amicus brief in U.S. Supreme Court case, United States v. Arthrex. The Alliance argued that the appointments clause challenge as it relates to the administrative patent judges (APJ) who preside over inter partes review (IPR) proceedings as members of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) should not disrupt IPR. The group states IPR is essential to maintaining a properly balanced patent system.
