In Law360, PTAB Chair Quoted on U.S. Supreme Court’s Oil States Case

Practices: Intellectual Property, Intellectual Property Litigation, Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) Proceedings

Intellectual property litigation partner and Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) chair Scott McKeown (Washington, D.C.) was quoted in a Nov. 28 Law360 article that examines the oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in Oil States Energy Services LLC v. Greene’s Energy Group LLC.

Mr. McKeown discussed the constitutionality of the America Invents Act (AIA) inter partes reviews process. He explained his expectation that the High Court will uphold AIA trial proceedings as constitutional given the review of such proceedings by the Federal Circuit, and that patent rights flow from a statutory framework that can be adjusted by Congress.
