Article Explains Ruling Limiting Appellate Review of PTAB Decisions To Begin Inter Partes Proceedings

An article by Ben Davidson in the Los Angeles Daily Journal explains the U.S. Supreme Court’s April 20, 2020 decision in Thryv, Inc. v. Click-To-Call Technologies, which limited review of PTAB decisions to institute Inter Partes Review proceedings.  The 7 to 2 decision written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg held that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit was precluded from reviewing whether the Patent Office properly instituted an inter partes review proceeding, even when the Patent Office admitted that the petition to institute was time barred.  See Ruling Limited Review of PTAB Decision To Institute Inter Partes Reviews, Daily Journal, May 11, 2020.
