Hot bench: In re Chudik

The oral argument of In re Chudik is interesting for several reasons. ¬†The associate solicitor faced a bit of a hot bench from the Federal Circuit panel with questions coming from the get-go. ¬†Judges Reyna and Stoll fired a lot of questions at the Associate Solicitor and even Judge Dyk had some questions challenging the Office’s rejection of the claims.

The case is also interesting in that it deals with the language “arranged to” and whether the Office should interpret that language as structural or functional language.
