Today the Federal Circuit issued one nonprecedential opinion in a patent case and one precedential erratum. Here is the introductions to the opinion and the erratum.
Wilson v. Martin (Nonprecedential)
John R. Wilson appeals from a decision of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in an interference proceeding finding certain claims of U.S Patent No. 8,809,044 unpatentable as anticipated or obvious. Because substantial evidence supports the Board’s finding that the prior art discloses the claimed “ambient gas” limitation, and the Board did not abuse its discretion by refusing to apply judicial estoppel, we affirm.
