3746 Ex Parte Lucas et al 12463457 - (D) GREENHUT 102/103 Ingersoll-Rand Company Krieg DeVault LLP HAMO, PATRICK

Generally, for a combination to be obvious to one skilled in the art there must be at least a reasonable expectation that the combination would successfully yield a functioning device. See In re O’Farrell, 853 F.2d 894, 903–04 (Fed. Cir. 1988). Whether there is a reasonable expectation of success is a question of fact. Medichem S.A. v. Rolabo S.L., 437 F.3d 1157, 1165–66 (Fed. Cir. 2006).
