Track Abuse of Process Decisions in the PTAB
The decision reported here is the latest in a series of PTAB decisions addressing accusations that hedge fund Hayman Credes Master Fund L.P. (under the name the Coalition for Affordable Drugs) has abused the IPR process by initiating IPRs against pharmaceutical companies while taking short positions on those companies’ stocks. The underlying motions cite 37 C.F.R. § 42.12 as a basis for imposing sanctions, including dismissal of the IPR proceedings.
