Until further notice, Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) oral hearings will be conducted remotely by video or telephone. During this time period, to listen in on any particular oral hearing, please make a request via email to PTABHearings@uspto.gov. The request should include any request for accommodations for individuals with disabilities, including captioning. The request must be received at least three business days prior to the oral hearing date. The Board will then respond to the request, and also provide any connection information. At a later date, a transcript for each oral hearing will be entered into the record of the relevant proceeding, and will be publicly available in the P-TACTS (https://ptacts.uspto.gov/ptacts/ui/home) for AIA Trials or in Public Pair (https://portal.uspto.gov/pair/PublicPair) for appeals, unless an exception applies.
NOTE: Due to last minute cancellations or no shows, there are no guarantees that a hearing on a particular proceeding will occur, although it may be posted.
