To satisfy the due diligence showing requirement of 37 C.F.R. § 1.131, Appellant must present proof of diligence, no matter how short the period to be covered. In re Mulder, 716 F.2d 1542, 1545 (Fed. Cir. 1983) (noting that focusing on the shortness of the period to be covered—two days—is misleading where there is no evidence of record showing diligence). Moreover, to establish diligence, the inventor must provide specific details as to what was done and when it was done during the critical period. See Gould v. Schawlow, 363 F.2d 908, 918 (CCPA 1966).

Mulder, In re, 716 F.2d 1542, 219 USPQ 189 (Fed. Cir. 1983) 2138.06, 2183, 2184

Gould v. Schawlow, 363 F.2d 908, 150 USPQ 634 (CCPA 1966) 2138.06

To establish diligence for constructive reduction to practice, the attorney’s diligence must be shown. “[R]easonable diligence can be shown if it is established that the attorney worked reasonably hard on the particular application in question during the continuous critical period.” Cf. Bey v. Kollonitsch, 806 F.2d 1024, 1027 (Fed. Cir. 1986) (interference). “[The inventor’s] records did not show the exact days when activity specific to this application occurred. Thus, we cannot say that the board clearly erred in finding that ‘the documented activities with regard to [the present application] are insufficient by themselves to prove diligence.’” Id. at 1028 (second brackets in original). “[I]t may not be possible for a patent attorney to begin working on an application at the moment the inventor makes the disclosure, because the attorney may already have a backlog of other cases demanding his attention” so that “the courts have recognized that reasonable diligence is all that is required of the attorney.” Id. “Generally, the patent attorney must show that unrelated cases are taken up in chronological order, thus, the attorney has the burden of keeping good records of the dates when cases are docketed as well as the dates when specific work is done on the applications.” Id.

Bey v. Kollonitsch, 806 F.2d 1024, 231 USPQ 967 (Fed. Cir. 1986) 2138.06
