McKool Smith principal Nick Matich will join the policy workshop, “Revisiting the USPTO’s Rulemaking Authority After Cuozzo And City Of Arlington,” hosted by the Amicus Committee of The Naples Roundtable, on September 10, 2021 from 2pm to 4pm. During this workshop, the panelists will debate multiple questions as follow:

  • After City of Arlington, will the USPTO’s interpretation of 35 U.S.C. § 2(b)(2)(A) be owed Chevron deference?
  • After Cuozzo, will the Federal Circuit continue to interpret § 2(b)(2)(A) as being limited to “procedural”—as distinct from “substantive”—rules?
  • How should § 2(b)(2)(A) be interpreted?
  • What new rules might the Biden Administration offer to test the scope of § 2(b)(2)(A)?
