« Federal Grand Jury Indicts Von Brunn in Holocaust Memorial Shooting | Main | 11th Circuit Nominee Questioned on Sentencing »

David: you may have unintentionally demeaned/downgraded the interference process. I thought that, in the first instance, PLJs and not Examiners determined priority of invention (vs. finding that an actual / apparent interefence facially exists). I also understand that the basis for "interference practice" has constitutional roots, so changing to a "first-to-file" system may involve considerations deeper than convenience or glogal harmonization.
