CAFC Goes on Tour to Chicago
The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) will be holding court in Chicago the week of November 8, 2005. This provides a great opportunity for students and practitioners who rarely get to see the CAFC in action.

This is the second appeal in Golden Blount. In the first round, the Federal Circuit remanded a finding of infringement because the District Court’s decision was too “sparse” and thus “insufficient under Rule 52(a).”
On remand, the District Court entered a new order against the defendant. However, that order is being challenged once again.
