By way of background, in October 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari in Arthrex v. Smith & Nephew to review the Federal Circuit's decision regarding the constitutionality of the appointment of USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) judges. Our October 14, 2020, client alert outlined analysis from Milliken highlighting what practitioners and litigants should know as the Supreme Court considers this case.
The firm will continue to provide updates and analysis on this case up to the Court’s decision and beyond.
