Jeff Nichols to Present at the Intellectual Property Law Symposium
March 15, 2017

On March 15, 2017, Jeff Nichols will co-present with Judge Prost and Judge Pallmeyer on the panel, "True or False - PTAB Trials and Alice Motions Simplify the Case," at the Federal Circuit Bar Association, Intellectual Property Law Symposium.

The panel will discuss:

  • Whether PTAB trials simplify patent infringement cases or make them more complex.
  • The impact of appeals from parallel proceedings (PTAB and district court) on the Federal Circuit’s docket.
  • The uncertain scope of estoppel in cases where the challenged claims are confirmed as patentable by the PTAB, and whether the likelihood of success in a PTAB trial warrants granting a motion to stay.
  • Whether Alice motions may unduly prolong litigation and the circumstances under which the District Court may wish to address an Alice motion.
