The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has issued new Revised Protocols for In-Person Arguments (pdf) effective immediately. These revisions increase the number of permitted attendees at argument to allow counsel to bring up to two attendees into the courthouse. All attendees must continue to comply with requirements for testing or medical documentation, masking, and limitations on access while in the courthouse.
Counsel scheduled for the July 2022 session will receive separate notification of these changes and need not file updated information with the court.
