The apparatus designed to carry out the method is found and illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings.
At the hearing claims 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9 were withdrawn, leaving in issue and for the consideration of the court claims 3, 4, 5, 7, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19.
The Examiner and also the Board of Appeals have thoroughly analyzed the prior art as exemplified by the patents cited and relied upon by the defendant, and the court agrees with the conclusions reached by the Patent Office tribunals that the claims in issue are unpatentable over the references, and so finds.
Counsel for the defendant will prepare and submit formal and detailed findings of fact and state conclusions of law as required by Rule 52 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 28 U.S.C.A. following section 723c, and appropriate judgment dismissing the claims in issue and those withdrawn.
