This morning, the Federal Circuit released a precedential opinion in a patent case, a nonprecedential opinion in a pro se veterans case, and two nonprecedential orders granting a summary affirmance and a dismissal. Here are the introductions to the opinions and links to the orders.

United Cannabis Corp. v. Pure Hemp Collective Inc. (Precedential)

United Cannabis Corporation (“UCANN”) sued Pure Hemp Collective (“Pure Hemp”) for infringement of U.S. Patent No. 9,730,911 (the “’911 patent”) in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. After prolonged litigation, UCANN and Pure Hemp stipulated to the dismissal of their claims and counterclaims. Pure Hemp then moved for attorney fees and sanctions, which the district court denied. Pure Hemp asks us to reverse and declare this case exceptional. We affirm.

Davis v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)

Ermon Davis appeals a decision of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“Veterans Court”) dismissing his appeal for lack of jurisdiction. Because the Veterans Court properly determined that it lacked jurisdiction, we affirm.
