This morning, the Federal Circuit issued a nonprecedential opinion in a government contracts case and a nonprecedential opinion in a patent case appealed from the International Trade Commission. The Federal Circuit also issued two Rule 36 judgments. Here are the introductions to the opinions and a list of the Rule 36 judgments.

Red Cedar Harmonia, LLC v. United States (Nonprecedential)

Red Cedar Harmonia, LLC, appeals a final decision of the United States Court of Federal Claims granting the government and NextGen Federal Systems, LLC, judgment on the administrative record regarding the government’s contract award to NextGen. Red Cedar Harmonia, LLC v. United States, 144 Fed. Cl. 11, 29 (2019). Because the government’s contract award was not arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or otherwise not in accordance with law, we affirm.

Caterpillar, Inc. v. International Trade Commission (Nonprecedential)

The International Trade Commission (“Commission”) determined that certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,140,693 (“the ’693 patent”) were invalid because of an onsale bar. Caterpillar Inc. and Caterpillar Paving Products, Inc. (collectively “Caterpillar”) appeal the Commission’s invalidity determination as to claim 28. We affirm.
