Although the Examiner is directed to give a claim term its broadest reasonable interpretation, the interpretation must be consistent with: (1) the ordinary and customary meaning of the term (unless the term has been given a special definition in the specification); (2) the use of the claim term in the specification and drawings; and (3) the interpretation that those skilled in the art would reach. See In re Cortright, 165 F.3d 1353, 1359 (Fed. Cir. 1999).
