10 March 2021 Thomson Reuters Westlaw IP News

Partner George E. Quillin was quoted in the Thomson Reuters Westlaw IP article, “Supreme Court’s appointments clause ruling will keep PTAB intact, lawyers predict” about oral arguments in the closely-watched U.S. Supreme Court patent case, United States / Smith & Nephew v. Arthrex

Quillin told Thomson Reuters: “A decision with the least immediate impact would be one in which the Court agrees with the government and Smith & Nephew that Administrative Patent Judges (APJ) have been inferior officers all along. Hence, there would be no need to for a judicial fix to anything.”
