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. Notably, Jude Lourie expressed additional views on the matter. The second opinion comes in another patent case, this one appealed from the Northern District of California. In this opinion, the Federal Circuit explains why it reverses the district court’s determination that a party does not have standing and remands the case. This morning the Federal Circuit also released three nonprecedential opinions. Two come in cases appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board, and one comes in a veterans case appealed from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Here are the introductions to the opinions.
