Takeaway: The Board will find that a petition includes improper incorporation by reference, and will disregard the citations, to the extent that the petition: (1) cites to another document, such as a supporting expert declaration, without adequate explanation of the portion cited; (2) cites to claim charts in another document; or (3) cites to another document for support for a conclusory statement that is not supported in the petition itself.
