This morning, the Federal Circuit issued a nonprecedential order dismissing appeals and denying a petition for a writ of mandamus in a case decided by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Here is the introduction of the order.
In re Cisco Systems Inc. (Nonprecedential Order)
Cisco Systems Inc. appeals from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s decisions denying its petitions to institute inter partes review (“IPR”). Cisco alternatively seeks a writ of mandamus to review those decisions. Having received the parties’ responses to the court’s show cause order, we now dismiss the appeals and deny mandamus.
