1611 Ex Parte Kao et al 11680432 - (D) GRIMES 103 MAYER BROWN LLP CHANNAVAJJALA, LAKSHMI SARADA

This appeal returns to us following a remand by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. ... The Court of Appeals concluded that this finding was not supported by substantial evidence, because the same declaration on which we depended “expressly stated that there is no general correlation between the Basket and Paddle Methods and cited prior art literature that supported this conclusion.” In re Huai-Hung Kao, 639 F.3d 1057, 1067 (Fed. Cir. 2010). The court vacated our decision and remanded “so that the Board can consider whether, under the proper analysis, the evidence of record is sufficient to maintain an obviousness rejection.” Id.

The application was remanded to the Examiner so that five questions could be addressed (Remand Order, Jan. 3, 2012). The Examiner provided a response to the questions (mailed April 16, 2012), as did Appellants (received May 16, 2012).

After considering the evidence of record anew, in light of the guidance provided by the Court of Appeals, we conclude that the Examiner has not provided evidence sufficient to support a prima facie case of obviousness.
