This week and next Monday the Federal Circuit will hold 17 panel hearings and hear oral arguments in about 47 cases. Notable cases include Evolved Wireless LLC v. ZTE (USA) Inc., In Re FCA US LLC, X2Y Attenuators, LLC v. Intel Corporation, Cardionet, LLC v. InfoBionic, Inc., and VirnetX Inc. v. Apple Inc.
One case we are following that is being argued next week is In re FCA US LLC. This case presents the question of whether the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board erred in holding a mark was likely to cause confusion given that in a separate proceeding a district court determined confusion was unlikely.
