Frankenstein’s Monster and the Federal Circuit

While the Federal Circuit makes reference to literary characters from time to time, it is rare that Frankenstein’s monster has ever come up in Federal Circuit or CCPA opinions.  I thought it was a creative expression in a recent oral argument where the patent owner referred to the PTAB’s rejection as a “Frankenstein hodge-podge collection of citations.”  [Listen]

I am familiar with a “rolling 103 rejection.”  Perhaps we should add a “Frankenstein’s monster rejection” to the list.
