In re Naquin, 398 F.2d 863, 158 U.S.P.Q. (BNA) 317 (C.C.P.A. 1968) (full-text).
Appellate Court Proceedings Edit
Opinions in affidavits filed by the applicant are not evidence. An affidavit, stating that an average programmer could program a computer to make the mathematical computations for the claimed method, would not overcome a rejection of the claims, since the specification did not set forth the method in such terms as to enable a person skilled in the art to use it.
