Welcome to another edition of Skilled in the Art. I’m Law.com IP reporter Scott Graham. I’ve been focused a lot on the changes in PTAB leadership the last couple of days. It’s time to catch up on Federal Circuit news. The court went en banc to deliver a footnote this week, and reviewed a $51 million (!) exceptional case fee award. Details below. As always you can email me your thoughts and feedback and follow me on Twitter.
