USPTO Provides New Anonymous Nomination Form for PTAB Decisions

It used to be that nominations had to be submitted in writing to the Chief PTAB judge within 60 days of the issuance of the decision being nominated.  The new form is not date limited, and can be submitted without providing contact information.  And so, firms that represent both patent holders and petitioners can remain anonymous.

However, at least as of today, the form is not without glitches.  My attempt to nominate a decision was frustrated by the “paper number” field.
