SSJR attorneys have secured a decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board reversing all outstanding rejections of all claims pending in application no. 12/355,352 related to a hand-held vacuum. SSJR overcame rejections under 35 U.S.C. §112, 35 U.S.C. §102, and 35 U.S.C. §103, with the PTAB repeatedly agreeing with SSJR and pointing out that SSJR had better arguments than the Examiner. Allowance of the claims and issue of the patent is expected in due course.
