Summary:
Pity the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Last month, the Supreme Court overruled its decision in the case of Quanta v. LG—the fourth successive time in three terms that the Supreme Court has overturned its patent rulings. Congress created the Federal Circuit as a specialized patent court in 1982, and for the first two decades of its existence the Supreme Court largely gave it a free hand to shape patent law. Under new chief justice John Roberts, the Court has begun scrutinizing the body of law the Federal Circuit crafted over the last quarter-century, and the justices don’t like what they see.
