Vilox Technologies, LLC v. Iancu

 
DOCKET NO.
OP. BELOW
SUBJECT
Patent

Question(s) Presented

1. “Whether the court of appeals’ severance remedy of the Appointments Clause violation of Administrative Patent Judges (APJs) is consistent with congressional intent, where Congress has long considered tenure protections essential to secure the independence and impartiality of administrative judges.”

2. “Whether the court of appeals correctly held that the elimination of APJ tenure protections was sufficient to render APJs inferior officers, even though their decisions still are not reviewable by any principal executive officer.”
