You are invited to our upcoming webinar titled “Implications of the Arthrex and Minerva SCOTUS Decisions – A Practical Discussion.” During the webinar, we will discuss the key takeaways from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions in Arthrex and Minerva and what they mean moving forward for IP practitioners.

In Arthrex, the Court concluded that APJs’ ability to render final decisions in inter partes reviews on behalf of the executive branch is “incompatible with their status as inferior officers.” In Minerva, the Court largely followed the Government’s suggested course, affirming the continued vitality of the doctrine but cabining its scope.

During the webinar, we will discuss the following:
