2655 Who Reexamines [R-07.2015]
The examination is ordinarily conducted by the same patent examiner who made the decision that the reexamination request should be granted. See MPEP § 2636.
However, if a petition under 37 CFR 1.927 is granted overturning a refusal to order reexamination of all of the claims requested to be reexamined, the reexamination proceeding will normally be conducted by another examiner. See MPEP § 2648.
