                                                DAVID H. BURNS                                                          
                                                 Appeal 2007-2080                                                       
                                              Application 10/660,990

                                             Decided: October 10, 2007                                                  
                 Before CHARLES F. WARREN, CATHERINE Q. TIMM, and                                                       
                 LINDA M. GAUDETTE, Administrative Patent Judges.                                                       
                 TIMM, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                     

                                 ORDER REMANDING TO THE EXAMINER                                                        
                        We remand this application to the Examiner because this appeal is not                           
                 yet ready for our review.                                                                              
                        This appeal is not ripe for review because on June 11, 2007,                                    
                 Appellants filed an Information Disclosure Statement (IDS).  The Examiner                              
                 has not yet had the opportunity to review this IDS and the references cited                            
                 therein.  We, therefore, remand the application to the Examiner for the
