In re Lukach, 442 F.2d 967 (CCPA 1971) (to be entitled to § 120 benefit, subject matter claimed in later application must be described in parent in manner required by § 112); In re Scheiber, 587 F.2d 59, 62 (CCPA 1978) (to be entitled to benefit under § 120, claimed invention must be described in parent application; "Stempel" rationale does not apply to issues under § 120).

An applicant cannot “antedate” a statutory bar. In re Foster, 343 F.2d 980 (CCPA 1965), overruling In re Palmquist, 319 F.2d 547 (CCPA 1963) (the overruled Palmquist decision arguably supports 3M’s position on appeal).
