This morning the Federal Circuit issued two nonprecedential opinions. The first comes in a patent case also involving trade secrets. This case was appealed from the Central District of California. The second comes in an employment case appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board. Here are the introductions to the opinions.

Masimo Corp. v. True Wearables, Inc. (Nonprecedential)

Appellees Masimo Corporation and Cercacor Laboratories, Inc. (collectively, “Masimo”) filed suit against appellants True Wearables, Inc., (“TW”) and Dr. Marcelo Lamego alleging breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets under California and federal law, breach of fiduciary duty, and patent infringement. Masimo filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on its trade secret claims, and the district court granted the motion. We affirm.

Cross v. Office of Personnel Management (Nonprecedential)

Doreen C. Cross appeals the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board affirming the final decision of the Office of Personnel Management denying her request for former spouse survivor annuity benefits. Because the Board’s finding that OPM provided the statutorily mandated notice of annuity election rights is not supported by substantial evidence, we reverse.
