Roy Gross Obtains PTAB Win at Previous Firm
Roy D. Gross secured a decision from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) reversing all prior art rejections in U.S. Patent Application No. 12/500,421 having claims directed to an industrial robot having at least two attachment mechanisms. The PTAB agreed with Mr. Gross' arguments that the Examiner’s rejections were based on impermissible hindsight, impermissibly assembled the prior art using the pending claims as a roadmap and lacked the articulate reasoning with some rational underpinning needed to support the legal conclusion of obviousness.
Attached is the Appeal Brief and Reply Brief drafted by Mr. Gross as well as the PTAB’s decision.
