PTAB Committee Meeting: NYIPLA PTAB Committee to Discuss Scope of IPR Estoppel at February 7 Meeting

Event Date
  • 2/7/2023   4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Please arrive early for registration
  • Zoom


Join the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) PTAB Committee on February 7 to explore the current scope of IPR estoppel at the PTAB.

In 2022, the Federal Circuit overruled its prior precedent to clarify “that estoppel applies not just to claims and grounds asserted in the petition and instituted for consideration by the Board, but to all grounds not in the IPR but which reasonably could have been included in the petition” in California Institute of Technology v. Broadcom Ltd. (Fed. Cir. Feb. 4, 2022). 

Apple and Broadcom subsequently filed a petition for a writ of certiorari at the Supreme Court on September 2, 2022.  On January 17, 2023, the Supreme Court invited the Solicitor General to file a brief in this case expressing the views of the United States.

In this interactive meeting, Brian Murphy, Partner at Haug Partners and former Administrative Patent Judge at the PTAB will lead a discussion on The Many Flavors of IPR Estoppel:  A Review and Update, including the implications of the CalTech v. Broadcom decision and the current scope of IPR estoppel at the PTAB.

There will be a Q&A session afterward.  This event is free to all NYIPLA members and PTAB Committee members.  1.0 NY/NJ CLE credit will be available for attendees.

Please remember to re-register for the NYIPLA and PTAB Committee if you have not yet done so in the new year.
