How Fed. Circ. May Defer To PTAB In Facebook Case

Nov 8, 2019


Facebook Inc. v. Windy City Innovations LLC is currently pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Central to the appeal is the question of whether the Federal Circuit should provide deference under Chevron USA Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council Inc. to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board’s precedential decisions. As such, the case has the potential to call the entire Chevron framework into question.

Buyer Beware: FTC Orders Unwinding of a Consummated Transaction

Nov 07, 2019

On November 6, 2019, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) voted 5-0 to uphold Administrative Law Judge D. Michael Chappell’s initial decision that Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH’s (“Otto Bock”) acquisition of rival Freedom Innovations LLC (“Freedom”) substantially lessened competition in the market for microprocessor-driven prosthetic knees. Finding that the acquisition already has lessened competition and likely will lead to higher prices and less innovation, the Commission ordered Otto Bock to sell the majority of the Freedom assets to an FTC-approved buyer.
