Also, since a final refusal has been ...

I have a client whos application has been suspended pending disposition of another appl.  However, as i pointed out to the examining attorney, the other appl. issued a NOA on 12/19/06 and did not file a SOU/Ext by 6/19/07.  Q-when will this application become abandoned?  Should I just wait until the USPTO contacts me?

Thanks!

Thanks for the he...
