Appellant ZUP, LLC appeals the District Court’s decision granting summary judgment in favor of Appellee Nash Manufacturing, Inc. The district court invalidated claims 1 and 9 of U.S. Patent No. 8,292,681 relating to a water recreational board and a method of riding such a board as obvious and, in the alternative, held that Nash does not infringe claim 9. The CAFC affirms the district court’s holding that claims 1 and 9 are invalid as obvious and does not reach the infringement question. Judge Newman dissents.
