Please join the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) PTAB Committee on December 19th for a discussion regarding a Question of First Impression: What Happens When the PTAB Fails to Meet the Statutory Deadline for Issuing a Final Written Decision?

This interactive meeting will be hosted by Co-Chairs Charley Macedo and Ken Adamo, of the NYIPLA PTAB Committee.

In Purdue Pharma L.P. v. Collegium Pharm., Inc., 2023 WL8043047 (Fed. Cir. Nov. 21, 2023) the question of when the PTAB Fails to Meet the Statutory Deadline for Issuing a Final Written Decision, what happens next? It remains to be seen whether the Federal Circuit’s decision will result in more Final Written Decisions being issued after the expiration of the 18-month statutory deadline, and whether mandamus will prove an effective remedy. 

Join us for a detailed review of this issue and for the discussion of possible effective outcomes.
