US utility application in 1984 wanted to use filing date of design patent in 1981. ALso in 1982 a Canadien Application was filed.

District COurt said Design App did not fully disclose the idea under 112 which requires a written description. Summary judgement.

SC ruled that sometimes a picture is enough, but that in this case it probably isnt. However, there was an error granting summary judgement because the facts in the case are still being disputed, they are not agreed upon, therefore the summary judgement is reversed and the court must have a trial.
