This morning the Federal Circuit released two nonprecedential opinions. The first comes in a patent case appealed from the Central District of California and addresses the on-sale bar; the second comes in a case appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board. Here are the introductions to the opinions.

CAP Export, LLC v. Zinus, Inc. (Nonprecedential)

This case comes to us on appeal for a third time. Zinus, Inc. appeals the United States District Court for the Central District of California’s summary judgment of invalidity under the on-sale bar, 35 U.S.C. § 102(a)(1), (b)(1). Because there are material factual disputes regarding whether the on-sale product anticipates the asserted claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,931,123, we vacate the district court’s summary judgment and remand.

Faris v. Department of the Air Force (Nonprecedential)

Michael Faris appeals from an order of the Merit Systems Protection Board (“MSPB”) denying his request for corrective action. Because we agree with the MSPB’s determination, we affirm.
