This morning, the Federal Circuit issued one precedential opinion in a patent case and one nonprecedential opinion in a Merit Systems Protection Board case. The court also issued one nonprecedential Rule 36 judgment. Here are the introductions to the opinions and the Rule 36 judgment.

Uniloc 2017, LLC v. Apple, Inc. (Precedential)

Uniloc 2017 LLC, Uniloc USA, Inc., and Uniloc Luxem- bourg, S.A. (collectively “Uniloc”) appeal orders issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California denying, in full, their motions to seal. See Uniloc USA, Inc. v.

Taggart v. Merit Systems Protection Board (Nonprecedential)

Bryan Taggart appeals a final decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (“Board”) dismissing his individual right of action (“IRA”) appeal for lack of jurisdiction. Because the Board did not err in determining that it lacked jurisdiction to hear Taggart’s appeal, we affirm.
