Appeal of Tafas v. Kappos Dismissed

On November 13th, an en banc Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit granted the joint motion of all parties to dismiss the appeal of Tafas v. Kappos (the “continuation and claims rules” case).  Hence, the continuation and claims restrictions rules previously instituted by the USPTO are now officially gone.  The Federal Circuit refused to vacate the district court’s grant of summary judgment.
