Our Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) API (Beta) is a RESTful API with an easy to use search interface. You can easily browse USPTO PTAB public documents, search for specific content, and request a bulk download of PTAB content.  

The PTAB API synchronizes nightly with the PTAB E2E (end-to-end) system making the latest public America Invents Action (AIA) Trials information and documents available.

The PTAB API is a beta (initial) release.
