Patent Term Calculations: District Courts Split on PTA Calculations; Revive Focus on Deference to PTO Determinations  December 11, 2017 – 05:37 am

Exelixis v. Kappos (Exelixis II) (E.D. Va. 2013)

We now have a district court split on post-RCE patent term adjustment. This decision – siding with the PTO – arises from a second Exelixis case and will be called Exelixis II (Brinkema, J.) In Exelixis I, Judge T.S. Ellis sided with the patentee in finding that the PTO was improperly under-calculating the patent term owed to patentees who had filed a request-for-continued examination during the course of prosecution. Exelixis v. Kappos, — F. Supp. 2d —, 2012 WL 5398876 (E.D. Va. Nov. 1, 2012), as amended Nov. 6, 2012. In the parallel caes of Novartis AG v. Kappos, — F. Supp. 2d --, 2012 WL 5564736 (D.D.C. Nov. 15, 2012), Judge Huvelle adopted the reasoning of Judge Ellis in siding with the patentee. Those decisions basically held that "once the three year clock has run, PTA is to be awarded on a day for day basis regardless of subsequent events." The PTO has argued that an RCE stops the running of the PTA clock.

In her newly released opinion, Judge Brinkema has sided with the PTO in holding that "'any time consumed by continued examination of the application requested by the applicant under section 132(b)' (via the filing of an RCE) does not count toward that three-year period." Quoting 35 U.S.C. §154(b)(1)(B). Exelixis I is already on appeal to the Federal Circuit and part II may be there soon as well.

You can do just about Anything

There are SO many career opportunities once you have your nursing degree.
You can go into Pharmaceutical sales or clinical development, drug safety, clinical information management- this is all only in Pharma, you can check out jobs at biospace.com to see the full range.
Otherwise, you can go into legal nurse consulting (requires experience as a nurse) the insurance industry, cruise...e in this country start to deteriorate more rapidly over the next decade, you will have the knowledge to be able to "defend" your own family if they are ever ill-
God knows I would not leave my families bedside in a hosptial these days without my overseeing the nursing care- NOt that I don't trust or respect nurses, but the atmosphere we practice in promotes the chance for serious errors.

The reason why they get away with it is that

And you aren't.
You have to realize that you don't have all the answers nor all the knowledge here. The true immature one is the OP because you have to learn to choose your battles and it seems that this one happens over and over again.
We don't know a lot of the story here - what if the OP actually sabotaged something or even harmlessly forgot to do something on time? It's not managements fault there now is it?
You need to do some soul searching and really think - is it you or is it them? Usually it's both but it's usually more you than them because they stay and you go.
