CAFC

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, commonly referred to as ‘the Federal Circuit.’  The appellate court that has exclusive jurisdiction over patent appeals from district courts as well as the USPTO.  The Federal Circuit was established in 1982 to regularize patent law across the country but has often been criticized for what many perceive as an applicant/patentee friendly bias — especially during its first two decades when its decisions were rarely reviewed by the Supreme Court.  (Also, “Fed Cir”)
