In re Swartz, 232 F.3d 862, 864 (Fed. Cir. 2000) is illustrative. In that case, the PTO provided several references showing that results in the area of cold fusion were irreproducible. The court found that these references "provided substantial evidence that those skilled in the art would 'reasonably doubt' the asserted utility and operability of cold fusion." Id. at 864. And the evidentiary burden then shifted to Swartz to submit "evidence of operability that would be sufficient to overcome reasonable doubt," i.e., evidence sufficient to convince a person of skill in the art of the invention's asserted utility. Id. Failing to satisfy this evidentiary burden, the court found that "the Board did not err in concluding that the utility of Mr. Swartz's claimed process had not been established and that his application did not satisfy the enablement requirement." Id.
