The result of all this was that the EBA refused to make a proposal to terminate the appointment of the Board Member, ordered reimbursement of his costs, and ordered the decision to be published. Merpel is happy to comply with the last part.
One has to wonder how long Mr Battistelli's position can be considered tenable, given that he has been held by the highest tribunal in the European Patent system to have violated the judicial independence of that tribunal, and to have threatened its members?
Then again, some AC delegates will not be fans of this decision (this being their third rebuff from the Enlarged Board in relation to a single disciplinary matter). Bear in mind that the AC was already given the opportunity to distance itself once from Mr Battistelli's actions and did not do so, or at least not unambiguously. One must assume that Mr Battistelli still enjoys the love and support of at least a faction within the AC (though Merpel hears that the faction shrinks at each meeting...).
