Greetings and welcome to Skilled in the Art. I’m IP reporter Scott Graham. It’s been an interesting couple of days on the hiring front. The PTO has a new deputy director. The PTO’s former solicitor joined Perkins Coie. And Knobbe‘s PTAB chief has a new law firm. I’ll have details on those moves below, plus a look at how a novel sovereign immunity defense to Section 101 fared at a Federal Circuit hearing (hint: not well). As always feel free to email me your comments and follow me on Twitter.
