This morning, the Federal Circuit released four nonprecedential orders. One order summarily affirmed a judgment of the Court of Federal Claims; one order denied a petition for a writ of mandamus seeking to vacate an order transferring a patent case from the Northern District of Illinois to the Eastern District of Texas; and two orders dismissed appeals. Here is selected text from the summary affirmance and denial of the petition and links to the dismissals.
Here is a report on recent news and commentary related to the Federal Circuit and its cases. Today’s report highlights:
- an article about “a bid by Apple Inc, Google Inc, Intel Corp and others to revive their challenge to a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office policy that made it harder to contest the validity of patents issued by the agency”;
- another article about the Federal Circuit’s skepticism about “allegations that [Facebook’s] news feed infringed on Usability Sciences’ 2014 patent”; and
- a blog post about the Federal Circuit denying a petition for a writ of mandamus filed by Amazon.com, Inc.
