This morning the Federal Circuit issued a nonprecedential opinion in an appeal of discipline levied by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and a nonprecedential erratum. Here is the introduction to the opinion and the erratum.
Piccone v. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (Nonprecedential)
Louis Piccone appeals a decision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia dismissing his petition for review of the final decision of the Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) suspending Mr. Piccone from practice before the PTO for three years. See Piccone v. United States Patent & Trademark Office, No. 18-CV-00307, 2018 WL 5929631 (E.D. Va. Nov. 13, 2018). Because the PTO’s decision to suspend Mr. Piccone was not arbitrary, capricious or an abuse of discretion, or otherwise not in accordance with law, we affirm.
Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH v. Mylan Pharms. Inc. (Nonprecedential)
