UPDATE: PTO Director Seeks Supreme Court Review of Federal Circuit Decision Denying PTO Recovery of Attorneys’ Fees
As an update of my report from last month on the circuit split on the issue of the recovery of the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s attorneys’ fees in connection with district court review of denials of trademark and patent applications, the PTO Director filed a petition for certiorari with the United States Supreme Court. We will follow proceedings and update you further on any developments at the High Court.
