Today the Federal Circuit issued one nonprecedential opinion in a patent case. Here is the introduction to the opinion.
Valspar Sourcing, Inc. v. PPG Industries, Inc. (Nonprecedential)
Valspar Sourcing, Inc. appeals the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s application of our mandate from a prior appeal, PPG Industries, Inc. v. Valspar Sourcing, Inc., 679 F. App’x 1002 (Fed. Cir. 2017) (“Valspar I”). Because the Board misinterpreted our mandate, we vacate the Board’s decisions and remand for the Director of the Patent Office and the Board to properly implement our mandate.
