April 23, 2021, Chris Loh was quoted in Law360 on President Biden’s nomination of Tiffany P. Cunningham to the Federal Circuit, a move that could pave the way for the appeals court's first black judge.
According to the article, Cunningham graduated from Harvard Law School and earned a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is a litigator at an international law firm whose work involves intellectual property cases for companies in both life sciences and technology. Beyond the benefit her appointment will have for diversity, attorneys had high praise for Cunningham's work as a litigator and the experience she'll bring to the court as a practicing attorney.
Loh said, "She'll have a very good first-hand appreciation of the practical effects of recent Federal Circuit rulings," such as the inconsistencies in the court's patent eligibility rulings.
