Opinions & Orders – November 4, 2022

This morning the Federal Circuit released two precedential opinions. The first opinion comes in a patent case appealed from the District of Delaware. In this opinion, the Federal Circuit affirms the district court’s determination that a party lacks standing as a matter of collateral estoppel and concludes that the same party has standing in a companion case.
