Marvin Gaye haunts Federal Circuit oral argument

Marvin Gaye made a special appearance at the Federal Circuit oral arguments a few months ago. ¬†During the oral argument of GLG FARMS LLC v. BRANDT AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, LTD., No. 2017-1937 (Fed. Cir. Aug. 2, 2018), the audio equipment in the courtroom picked up an audio transmission from somewhere in the neighboring area. ¬†At one point in the oral argument, you can plainly hear Marvin Gaye’s “I heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be mine” playing in the background.

The court later granted a rehearing of the oral argument, because the interference was significant at certain points throughout the oral argument.


I hope the Federal Circuit’s ASCAP license is paid up.
