3721 Ex Parte Bohn et al 12322144 - (D) HOELTER 103 PACTIV CORPORATION c/o NIXON PEABODY LLP TAWFIK, SAMEH

Accordingly, the Examiner has not made the initial requisite factual findings and as such, we agree with Appellants that the Examiner failed to “establish prima facie obviousness” as required for a proper rejection under § 103(a). App. Br. 6. See In re Warner, 379 F.2d 1011, 1017 (CCPA 1967) (the examiner has the initial duty of supplying the requisite factual basis and may not, because of doubts that the invention is patentable, resort to speculation, unfounded assumptions, or hindsight reconstruction to supply deficiencies in the factual basis).
