Teresa Rea Appointed Deputy Director of the USPTO

Teresa Stanek Rea has been appointed Deputy Director of the Patent Office and will report directly to Director Kappos. I don’t remember when I haven’t known Terry, as she has been active in the AIPLA for years. She has been a Board member and then, from serving as Secretary, worked her way up the “officer track” to become President two years ago. She has a chem background, has done both prosecution and opinion work, and brings a skilled and seasoned legal and political background to the Office. Congratulations, Terry, and I await even more proposed examination guidelines and attempts to grade the bumpy patent prosecution highway(s).
