This morning the Federal Circuit released a precedential opinion in a patent case appealed from the District of Delaware, affirming the district court’s denial of a motion for a preliminary injunction. The Federal Circuit also released a nonprecedential opinion in a veterans case appealed from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Here are the introductions to the opinions.

Koninklijke Philips N.V. v. Thales DIS AIS USA LLC (Precedential)

Thales DIS AIS Deutschland GMBH (Thales) appeals the United States District Court for the District of Delaware’s denial of its motion for a preliminary injunction enjoining Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Philips) from seeking an exclusion order from the International Trade Commission (ITC). We affirm.

Jordan v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)

James B. Jordan appeals from the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“Veterans Court”) affirming the Board of Veterans’ Appeals’ (“Board”) denial of an effective date earlier than April 11, 2006, for his secondary service-connected right-knee disability. Jordan v. Wilkie, No. 19-5684, 2021 WL 19031, at *1–3 (Vet. App. Jan. 4, 2021). Because 38 C.F.R. § 3.156(b) does not control the effective date of Mr. Jordan’s secondary service-connected disability and the Veterans Court did not improperly place the burden of demonstrating prejudice on Mr. Jordan, we affirm.
