This morning the Federal Circuit issued one precedential opinion in a patent case, one nonprecedential opinion in a patent case, and three Rule 36 judgments. Here are the introductions to the opinions and a list of the Rule 36 judgments.
Cheetah Omni LLC v. AT&T Services, Inc. (Precedential)
Cheetah Omni LLC (“Cheetah”) appeals from the judgment of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas dismissing its infringement claims against appellees AT&T Services, Inc. (“AT&T”) and Ciena Communications, Inc. and Ciena Corporation (collectively, “Ciena”) with prejudice. Judgment, Cheetah Omni LLC v. AT&T Servs., Inc., No. 3:17-cv-01993-K (N.D. Tex. Oct. 23, 2018), ECF No. 130. For the reasons detailed below, we affirm.
In re Fernandez (Nonprecedential)
Pro se appellant Dennis S. Fernandez appeals from a decision of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board affirming an examiner’s rejection of Fernandez’s applied-for claims as obvious. Because substantial evidence supports the Board’s obviousness determination, we affirm.
