Christopher McWhinney was quoted in an article, "Bill To End Chevron Deference May Put Target on USPTO Rules," which was published by Law360 [sub. req.] on January 20, 2017. In the article, Mr. McWhinney commented on how a bill that recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives might affect future proceedings within the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, specifically how "[t]he new legislation would eliminate deference to the agency, raising a real possibility for a different outcome in a later challenge to the claim construction standard."
