In Re Paul K. Coronel, 965 F.2d 1063 (Fed. Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 965 F.2d 1063 (Fed. Cir. 1992) March 13, 1992

Before RICH, PAULINE NEWMAN and MICHEL, Circuit Judges.

ORDER

RICH, Circuit Judge.


On December 10, 1991, Paul K. Coronel filed a notice of appeal seeking review of a patent examiner's final rejection. On January 30, 1992, the court directed Paul K. Coronel to show cause why his appeal should not be dismissed as premature. Coronel responded.

Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1295(a) (4) (A), this court has jurisdiction to review decisions of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences. Coronel concedes that he did not seek review of the examiner's rejection by the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences. Hence, Coronel's appeal is clearly premature. This court has no jurisdiction to review an appeal of a patent examiner's final rejection.

Accordingly,

IT IS ORDERED THAT:

Coronel's appeal is dismissed.
