I am a former entrepreneur, an electrical engineer, and a now a patent agent located in Southern California. I am enthusiastically pro-patent, but also believe that only applications that truly meet the legal criteria for patentablity should get through the system.

comment Need to re-submit prior art for a continuation if already submitted for the parent?
Not an answer - I don't know and a quick look at the MPEP didn't provide an answer. It is the case that a reference listed on an IDS in a parent application will fulfill your duty of disclosure in a child application. If it important at all, I would suggest refiling the references in the child application.

There are ways to get the USPTO to take a second look at a patent. (This is an application, not a patent) However, they do not rescind patents on their own initiative.
