The Federal Circuit has explained that, on appeal, the appellant must not only show the existence of error, but also that the error was harmful because it affected the decision below. In re Chapman, 595 F.3d 1330, 1338 (Fed. Cir. 2010), quoting Shinseki v. Sanders, 556 U.S. 396, 409 (2009) (“the burden of showing that an error is harmful normally falls upon the party attacking the agency’s determination.”).
...

The Examiner’s reliance on the case Gardner v. TEC Systems, Inc., 725 F2d 1338 (Fed. Cir. 1984) is unavailing. Obviousness is a legal conclusion based on the facts of each case. As the Federal Circuit explained, “[p]recedent cannot establish facts.” Case v. CPC Int’l, Inc., 730 F.2d 745, 750 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Gardner, which addressed the obviousness of an apparatus for drying printed materials on glossy papers (as in many periodicals), does not concern the materials and dimensions of solar cells relevant to the present appeal.
