Paper No. 26
UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE
BEFORE THE BOARD OF PATENT APPEALS
Ex parte YASUSHI NISHIMURA
Appeal No. 2004-2330
Application No. 09/986,977
HEARD: MARCH 9, 2005
Before MCQUADE, NASE and BAHR, Administrative Patent Judges.
BAHR, Administrative Patent Judge.
DECISION ON APPEAL
Appellant originally appealed the examiner’s rejection of claims 15-20. On page
2 of the answer (Paper No. 18), the examiner withdrew the rejection of claim 20, which
appellant subsequently amended to place it in independent form (see Paper Nos. 19
and 22). Accordingly, claim 20 now stands allowed and this appeal involves only claims
15-19. No other claims are pending.
