Term Definition
Federal Circuit

The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit or CAFC) is a specialized United States court of appeals headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is unique among all the courts of appeals as it is the only court based entirely on subject matter jurisdiction rather than geographic location. The Federal Circuit handles all patent appeals from US district courts, and its decisions are binding throughout the US, unless superseded by a decision of the Supreme Court or changes in legislation.
