REVERSED 
1613 THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA 14900907 - (D) GRIMES 102/103/OTDP Suzannah K. Sundby (UC) Canady + Lortz LLP HUANG, GIGI GEORGIANA

Therefore, the Examiner’s inherency position based on combining bits and pieces from disparate references constitutes reversible error.  PAR Pharm. Inc. v. TWI Pharms., Inc., 773 F.3d 1186, 1195 (Fed. Cir. 2014) (“[T]he concept of inherency must be limited when applied to obviousness, and is present only when the limitation at issue is the ‘natural result’ of the combination of prior art elements.”); accord In re Stepan Co., 868 F.3d 1342, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2017).  

Cf. In re Dillon, 919 F.2d 688, 693 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (en banc) (explaining that, in certain circumstances, it is not necessary that both a structural similarity between a claimed and prior art composition be shown and that there be a suggestion or expectation from the prior art that the claimed composition will have the same or a similar property as one newly discovered by the applicant). 

Stepan, In re, 868 F.3d 1342, 123 USPQ2d 1838 (Fed. Cir. 2017) 2144.05

Dillon, In re, 919 F.2d 688, 16 USPQ2d 1897 (Fed. Cir. 1990) 2141 2144 2144.08 2144.09 2145

Instead, we find the instant situation with a five-fold increase in water concentration to be more like Stepan, which found that “[a]bsent some additional reasoning, the Board’s finding that a skilled artisan would have arrived at the claimed invention through routine optimization is insufficient to support a conclusion of obviousness.”  In re Stepan Co., 868 F.3d 1342, 1346 (Fed.

The burden was on the Examiner to show that the combination of White and Padeste would have reasonably been expected to achieve the aspect ratio limitation of claim 44. In re Stepan Co., 868 F.3d 1342, 1348 (Fed. Cir. 2017) ("it was the PTO's-not Stepan's-burden to show that achieving [claim limitation] would have been obvious to a person of ordinary skill in the art"); Honeywell Int'l Inc. v. Mexichem Amanco Holding S.A. DE C. V., 865 F.3d 1348, 1355 (Fed. Cir. 2017) ("the burden is on the Examiner to show that one of ordinary skill would have had a motivation to combine the references with a reasonable expectation of success") ( emphasis in original).
