This morning, the Federal Circuit released a precedential opinion in a patent case. In it, the court reversed a district court’s dismissal of a claim based on claim preclusion. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

Inguran, LLC v. ABS Global, Inc. (Precedential)

Appellant Inguran, LLC appeals the dismissal by the Western District of Wisconsin of the induced infringement suit it brought against Appellee ABS Global, Inc. The district court found that Inguran’s claim was precluded by res judicata based on an earlier judgment the court entered against Appellee. On appeal, Inguran challenges the district court’s res judicata finding and the court’s interpretation of the scope of its earlier judgment. We reverse.
