This morning, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion. It addresses an appeal from a district court’s judgment in a patent case. Late yesterday, the Federal Circuit also released one nonprecedential order dismissing a petition for review. Here is the introduction to the opinion and link to the dismissal.

Infernal Technology, LLC v. Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Infernal Technology, LLC, and Terminal Reality, Inc., (collectively, “Infernal” for the remainder of this opinion) appeal the decision from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas denying Infernal’s motion for a new trial following a jury verdict that certain products belonging to Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC (“Sony”) did not infringe U.S. Patent No. 6,362,822 (“’822 patent”) and U.S. Patent No. 7,061,488 (“’488 patent”) (collectively, the “Asserted Patents”).  Sony, on a conditional cross-appeal, challenges the district court’s finding that the claims of the Asserted Patents are not ineligible for patent protection under 35 U.S.C. § 101.
