The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit recently refused to rule on a patent license dispute on the ground that it lacked jurisdiction because the case involved only state law claims. The court on April 21 ruled to transfer the appeal, ClearPlay Inc. v. Abecassis, to the 11th Circuit.

Max Abecassis and his company Nissim Corp. filed the appeal of a preliminary injunction issued by the Southern District of Florida on May 29, 2009.
