Curt Krechevsky and Ali Caless co-authored the article “TTAB Rulings' Preclusive Effect 5 Years After B&B Hardware,” published in IP Law360 on March 18, 2020.  They survey lower court decisions on TTAB issue preclusion over the five years since B&B Hardware, concluding that while B&B Hardware opened the door to extending preclusion to other types of TTAB case-dispositive issues, the Court may not have intended such an extension, nor is the extension a good idea from a policy perspective.
