This morning, the Federal Circuit released two nonprecedential opinions. One addresses an appeal from a judgment of a district court in a patent case and affirms the denial of a preliminary injunction. The other dismisses an appeal from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims for lack of jurisdiction. Here are the introductions to the opinions.

Smartsky Networks, LLC v. Gogo Business Aviation, LLC (Nonprecedential Opinion)

SmartSky Networks, LLC (“SmartSky”) appeals from the decision of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware denying SmartSky’s motion for preliminary injunction filed against Gogo Business Aviation, LLC and Gogo Inc. (collectively, “Gogo”).  J.A. 2–21 (Decision).  The district court found that SmartSky failed to meet its burden to establish that it is likely to succeed on the merits and that it is likely to suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not granted.  J.A. 13, 16–18, 21.  Because the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding that SmartSky failed to meet its burden of establishing irreparable harm, we affirm

Hernandez v. McDonough (Nonprecedential Opinion)
