This morning, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion and six nonprecedential orders. The opinion affirms judgments of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in two inter partes review proceedings. The orders dismiss appeals. Here are the introduction to the opinion and text from the orders.

Intel Corporation v. Koninklijke Phillips N.V. (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Intel Corporation (Intel) filed two petitions for inter partes review of several claims of U.S. Patent No. 9,436,809 (’809 patent). These petitions challenged the claims for being unpatentable as obvious over two distinct combinations of references: (1) Menezes in view of Brands-Chaum, and (2) OCPS in view of Brands-Chaum. The Board’s final written decisions found that Intel had failed to show by a
preponderance of the evidence that the challenged claims were unpatentable. Intel appeals these decisions, and we have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1295(a)(4)(A). We affirm.

Lopez v. United States (Nonprecedential Order)

Arthur Lopez appeals from the United States Court of Federal Claims’s order denying his motion to reassign this case to another judge. Having considered Mr. Lopez’s response to this court’s show cause order, we dismiss.
