In Re Martin G. Boost, 861 F.2d 728 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 861 F.2d 728 (Fed. Cir. 1988) Sept. 15, 1988

Before PAULINE NEWMAN, ARCHER and MICHEL, Circuit Judges.

PAULINE NEWMAN, Circuit Judge.


The decision of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, rejecting all the claims in patent application Serial No. 339,336 of Martin G. Boost, is affirmed.


We agree with the board that the references present a prima facie case of obviousness from the viewpoint of one of ordinary skill in reasonably pertinent fields, such person being charged with knowledge of the cited references. Applicant Boost has not met his burden of rebuttal.
