Public Advisory Concerning the Federal Circuit’s April 2020 Sitting (March 12, 2020)

Printer-friendly version

As part of the Federal Circuit’s response to public health guidance to minimize the risk of community transmission of COVID-19 in the United States, the court is proceeding with arguments scheduled for the April 2020 sitting as follows.  Some of the cases are being removed from the argument calendar and will be submitted on the briefs.  In cases remaining on the argument calendar, if counsel for either party is located outside the National Capital area, the argument will be conducted by telephonic conference at the date and time previously scheduled.  In cases scheduled for argument where counsel for both parties are local, as of now, the court plans to proceed with in-person argument as previously scheduled.  Parties in all cases will be notified individually as to how we plan to proceed in their case. 

According to established practice, the court will release same-day audio for all arguments on its website (available at http://www.cafc.uscourts.gov/oral-argument-recordings).  The court will continue to provide updated information to litigants and the public as the situation develops.
