USPTO Issues FY 2011 Performance and Accountability Report

The USPTO has issued its Performance and Acccountability Report for Fiscal 2011 (pdf here). With regard to our favorite tribunal, the report notes, at page 27, that precedential TTAB decisions for the fiscal year were down to a mere 38. Also noted are the issuance of the new edition of the TBMP in May 2011, and the expansion and refinement of the Board's Accelerated Case Resolution (ACR) practice options.
