811.02    New Requirement After Compliance With Preceding Requirement [R-08.2012]

Since 37 CFR 1.142(a) provides that restriction is proper at any stage of prosecution up to final action, a second requirement may be made when it becomes proper, even though there was a prior requirement with which applicant complied. Ex parte Benke, 1904 C.D. 63, 108 OG 1588 (Comm’r Pat. 1904).
