The opinion addresses an appeal in a patent case in which a district court found patent claims invalid as indefinite. The order denies a petition for writ of mandamus seeking to order a judge of the International Trade Commission to vacate an order preventing a witness from testifying. Here are the introductions to the opinion and the order.
Today, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion and three nonprecedential orders. The opinion addresses an appeal from a grant of summary judgment in which a district court held that a patent was ineligible for patenting.

Two of the orders released today transfer cases, and one dismisses an appeal. Late last Friday, the Federal Circuit also released a nonprecedential order dismissing an appeal. Here are the introductions to the opinion and transfers and links to the dismissals.
