As promised, the USPTO has released a final rules package containing amendments to the rules governing PTAB trials. Among other things, this amendment increases the page limits for motions to amend to twenty-five pages, exclusive of any claims appendix. The rule package also clarifies that routine discovery includes the cross-examination of only affidavit testimony prepared for the PTAB trial proceeding. The rules package can be found at 80 Fed. Reg. 28561- 66 (May 19, 2015), and a detailed breakdown of the rules can be found as an IP Update on Finnegan’s website.
