Ex Parte Moncla - BPAI Opinion
This pecedential expanded board opinion of the Board of Appeals and Interferences would be interesting, but no reasoning is presented. Basically claims were rejected under both 102 and 103 by the Examiner. The board reversed, but does not explain why. I hope this is not a precedent as I find it quite useful to see the board's reasoning.
