          Putnam v. Knudsen                                                           
          Interference No. 104,383                                                    

               On the afternoon of March 30, 2000, a telephone                        
          conference was conducted between the administrative patent                  
          judge and respective counsel for the junior and senior party.               
          In the telephone conference, Mr. Allen Putnam representing the              
          junior party indicated that the junior party’s abandonment of               
          the invention is not conditioned upon any ruling by the Board               
          as to the patentability of either party’s claims over the                   
          supplied information.                                                       
               The junior party’s request for entry of adverse judgment               
          against the junior party is granted.                                        
               Because the junior party has abandoned its invention                   
          corresponding to the Count and because the junior party has                 
          not and does not intend to file a motion for judgment under 37              
          CFR  1.633(a) against the senior party’s claims, the request               
          for a ruling of unpatentability against both parties’ claims                
          over prior art is denied.  It is                                            
               ORDERED that judgment as to the subject matter of the                  
          Count is herein awarded in favor of senior party MARK F.

               FURTHER ORDERED that judgment as to the subject matter of              
          the Count is awarded against junior party ALLEN PUTNAM;
