UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE
BEFORE THE BOARD OF PATENT APPEALS
Ex parte MATTHEW B. HOYT, BOBBY J. BAILEY,
STANLEY A. MCINTOSH,
PHILLIP E. WILSON, and GARY W. SHORE
Appeal No. 2006-0941
Application No. 10/059,364
Before PAK, OWENS, and FRANKLIN, Administrative Patent Judges
OWENS, Administrative Patent Judge.
REMAND TO THE EXAMINER
The appellants’ claim 20, which is the sole independent
claim, recites that the nylon core polymer has “an amine end
group (AEG) content of between about 10 meq/kg which is
susceptible to dyeing ...”. The other end point of the amine end
group content is not recited.
We therefore remand the application to the examiner for the
examiner to consider rejecting claim 20 as being indefinite under
35 U.S.C. § 112, second paragraph.
