Issue: Whether the Seventh Amendment allows the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal
Circuit to reverse a jury verdict based on a sua sponte new
claim construction of a term the district court concluded
was not a term of art and construed to have its plain
and ordinary meaning; where the Federal Circuit’s sua
sponte claim construction essentially recasts a specific
infringement factual question, previously decided by the
jury, as a claim construction issue, to be decided de novo
by the appellate court. CVSG: 5/11/2022
