AURA LAMP & LIGHTING, INC. v. INT'L TRADING CORP., 02-1631
The Federal Circuit has jurisdiction over an appeal where a complaint contained a claim for patent invalidity, but an appeal from the district court's dismissal of the case for want of prosecution is dismissed rather than transferred, as it is meritless.
