Eliot Williams published an article, "Federal Circuit now says PTAB time-bar decisions are appealable" in Daily Journal on January 10, 2018. This article addresses patent owners wishing to challenge a Patent Trial and Appeal Board decision to institute an inter partes review. Where the petition was alleged to be time-barred under the one-year statutory window, patent owners can now appeal that ruling to the U.S court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The resolution of these issues has the potential to significantly impact PTAB practice and the relationship between PTAB proceedings and related district court legislation.
