Case Summaries

This section primarily contains selected summaries of recent intellectual property law Federal Circuit decisions as presented by our attorneys at our informal weekly Professional Luncheons. In addition, pertinent Supreme Court and USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) decisions have been included. These presentations of recent court decisions and other developments equip us with the most up-to-date information. Like many of our programs, these presentations are tailored to address the interests of our clients, who are always welcome to attend.

Click on the name of the case summary you wish to view. You may view the full text of any Federal Circuit case by clicking on the appeal number.

Each case listing indicates the primary topic (or topics) of the case. For the most common topics, clicking on the topic in the list to the right (or the topic in an individual case listing) will access a page collecting the most recent cases addressing that topic, including, for the most important decisions, a link to our Special Report addressing the decision.
