Yesterday the Federal Circuit released a public version of a sealed precedential opinion addressing statutory and constitutional standing in a patent infringement case. While released yesterday, the opinion was buried on the Federal Circuit’s website given the date assigned to it—the date the court released the sealed version of the opinion in October. Here is the introduction to the newly-released, public version of the opinion.
University of South Florida Research Foundation, Inc. v. Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. (Precedential)
The University of South Florida Research Foundation, Inc. appeals the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut’s order dismissing its patent infringement suit against Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. for lack of statutory and constitutional standing. For the reasons stated below, we vacate the court’s dismissal and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
