New revenue extraction scheme from the PTO January 31, 2012

Posted by Brian Schar in General.

I just received two letters from the USPTO in response to a filing of drawings and other papers in response to a notice of missing parts in two separate cases.  In each case, the Legal Instruments Examiner (appropriately, the “LIE”), who was the same for each case, abandoned the application for failure to respond to the notice of missing parts.  The failure to respond was purportedly a problem with the margins of one or more drawings – a problem which the LIE failed to identify by figure number or sheet number. 

It might be time to contact the Ombudsman again and figure out what to do about this blatant extortion.  Apparently no one trained the LIE on 37 CFR 1.135(c).
