Yesterday [Aug. 7th], the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ordered en banc hearing in Robert Bosch LLC v. Pylon Manufacturing Corp. The questions presented for review concern 28 U.S.C. § 1292, one of the paths for interlocutory appeal. Specifically, the court will decide en banc whether this statute confers jurisdiction to entertain appeals from patent infringement liability determinations where a trial on damages has not yet occurred, or where willfulness issues are outstanding and remain undecided.
Fitch Even attorneys are monitoring this case and will report once the Federal Circuit issues its en banc decision.
