NEWS: USPTO Issues Updates To PTAB Trial Practice Guide, PTAB Litigation Blog

The USPTO has published a second update to the AIA Trial Practice Guide (TPG) containing additional guidance about trial practice before the Board.

The USPTO published the original TPG in August 2012, concurrent with the promulgation of the AIA Trial Rules. A first update to the TPG was published in August 2018.
