As to whether references are properly used to reject the claims of a pending patent application, the Federal Circuit has stated:

In order to rely on a reference as a basis for rejection of the applicant’s invention, the reference must either be in the field of the applicant’s endeavor or, if not, then be reasonably pertinent to the particular problem with which the inventor was concerned. See In re Deminski, 796 F.2d 436, 442, 230 USPQ 313, 315 (Fed.Cir.1986). . . . We have reminded ourselves and the PTO that it is necessary to consider “the reality of the circumstances”, In re Wood, 599 F.2d 1032, 1036, 202 USPQ 171, 174 (CCPA 1979)—in other words, common sense—in deciding in which fields a person of ordinary skill would reasonably be expected to look for a solution to the problem facing the inventor. 

In re Oetiker, 977 F.2d 1443, 1447 (Fed. Cir. 1992) (emphasis added).

Deminski, In re, 796 F.2d 436, 230 USPQ 313 (Fed. Cir. 1986) 2141.01(a)
Oetiker, In re, 977 F.2d 1443, 24 USPQ2d 1443 (Fed. Cir. 1992) 707.07(f) ,   716.01(d) ,   1504.01(a) ,   2107.02 ,   2142 ,   2145 ,   2164.07
