LUTRELLE F. PARKER, Acting Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, Petitioner, v. MALCOLM E. BERGY, et al., Respondents; LUTRELLE F. PARKER , Acting Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, Petitioner, v. ANANDA M. CHAKRABARTY, Respondent.
OCTOBER TERM, 1979
December 20, 1979
On Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeal
MOTION TO DISMISS AND VACATE AS TO RESPONDENTS MALCOLM E. BERGY, ET AL.
Respondents Malcolm E. Bergy et al, by filing an Amendment (Appendix A) with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on December 19, 1979, have abandoned the subject matter of this appeal insofar as it applies to those respondents.
In view of the abandonment of the Bergy et al. subject matter, the controversy is now moot as to those respondents. See Brenner v. Hofstetter, 389 U.S. 5 (1967). Respondents Bergy et al therefore move that the judgment (insofar as it applies to those respondents) be vacated and the case remanded to the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals with directions to dismiss the appeal to that court as moot.
