David Cartwright, Appellant, v. Howard Johnston and Lillian H. Troxell, Appellees, 833 F.2d 1022 (Fed. Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 833 F.2d 1022 (Fed. Cir. 1987) October 9, 1987

Before PAULINE NEWMAN, Circuit Judge, BALDWIN, Senior Circuit Judge, and ARCHER, Circuit Judge.


The Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences in Patent Interference No. 100,363 awarded priority to the senior party Johnston and Troxell, based on the Board's determination of multiple issues. The junior party Cartwright appeals the priority award, asserting that the senior party failed to comply with 35 U.S.C. § 112, first paragraph, dealing with enablement and best mode.

We have reviewed the Board's decision and its premises. As we discern no reversible error, the decision is affirmed.
