New Jersey Intellectual Property Law Association (NJIPLA)
Annual PTAB Webinar Series: The Interplay Between IPRs and District Court Litigation: Strategies and Lessons
Strategic considerations necessary for the pursuit of parallel patent proceedings before the PTAB and a District Court have become increasingly complex and jurisdictionally dependent. Significantly, the PTAB’s discretionary denial practice has changed the landscape for how, when, and where to purse invalidity challenges. Former Lead Administrative Patent Judge Trenton Ward will address the PTAB’s recent precedent regarding discretionary denials in view of concurrent District Court proceedings, including the of use of Sotera stipulations. Further, Trenton will address best practices for Plaintiffs raising invalidity challenges in both forums and Defendants defending against such challenges.
