New Vision vs. Xango Lawsuits and Patent Battles

by louabbott on May 16, 2005


SCOTTSDALE, AZ – MAY 16, 2005. The U.S. Patent Office issued its final written opinion rejecting all 81 claims in XanGo’s Patent No 6,730,333. This action was taken despite multiple meetings with XanGo’s in-house patent expert Steven Bean, it’s outside patent law firm and the review of over thirty pages of memoranda and supporting affidavits filed by XanGo LLC, a Lehi, UT company. Specifically, a panel of three expert U.S. Patent Officers, consisting of the primary examiner, a supervisor patent examiner and a special program examiner, found that every one of XanGo’s 81 claims were unpatentable. The Patent Office’s rationale was concise – basically that there is nothing novel or patentable in adding several fruit juices together. The Patent Office also rejected XanGo’s claim that they were the first to introduce mangosteen juice into the market, specifically concluding: “Thus, the rejection [of the entire patent] is proper. THIS ACTION IS FINAL.” You may review the entirety of the rulings by going to the office government Patent Application Information Retrieval System at After this site comes up, enter application No. 90/007,178, and click on the image file wrapper tab, which will reveal an index of the document history.
