On the effective use of a reply brief

from Ex parte HAVELIWALA

As to the use of a reply brief:

With respect to independent claim 20, Appellants provide a useful
overview of the claimed invention at page 4 of the Reply Brief. While the
specific illustration is not in the original Specification, we find the overview
to be well supported by the originally filed Specification and drawings and
illustrative of the claimed invention (see Reply Br. 4). We find Appellants’
arguments in the Reply Brief to be well founded, and we adopt them as our
own. (Reply Br. 3-7).
