Locke Lord Argues Appeal Before Federal Circuit, Which Affirms Judgment in Favor of Sennco Solutions

Hugh Balsam (Chicago) argued an appeal before The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which affirmed a judgment in favor of Sennco Solutions, Inc., on April 20, 2020. The appeals court affirmed a ruling by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board upholding several of Sennco’s patent claims against an invalidity challenge for obviousness. The patent is directed to a highly successful security device for displaying handheld electronics in a retail setting. The appeal was one of the first argued telephonically in the wake of the Federal Circuit’s cancellation of in-person argument due to the coronavirus pandemic.
