716.04    Suspended Docket Checked

A legal instruments examiner ("LIE") will review each case in the suspended docket at least every six months to determine whether continued suspension is appropriate.  If the LIE determines that the application should remain suspended, he or she should report the suspension check in the Trademark database.  If suspension is no longer necessary, the LIE will notify the examining attorney and the examining attorney will take the appropriate action.
