Summary: Where the Patent Trial and Appeal Board decides to scrutinize a challenged patent, it must now address every challenged claim in the petition. As we inch closer to the one-year mark, how has the Supreme Court’s decision in SAS affected practice before the Board? How have the Federal Circuit and district courts dealt with SAS?  And what challenges to the post-grant regime are litigants making after Oil States? Our panel of practitioners, in-house attorneys, and a PTO associate solicitor (pending approval) will explore recent developments for estoppel, institution, stays, remands, and constitutional challenges in the wake of SAS and Oil States.
