Can someone provide real life  cases (i.e. based
on the court verdict)?

I'm not sure what you mean by "passing" but start with KSR v Teleflex:  http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/06pdf/04-1350.pdf  
 
Also try looking up:
Syngenta Seeds Inc. v. Monsanto
Leapfrog Enterprices Inc. v. Fisher-Price  
Omegaflex, Inc. v. ParkerHannifin  
Frazier v. Layne Christensen Co.
Pfizer v. Apotex
 
If you are looking for a recent case where claims were held to not be obvious, try:
Takeda Chemical Indus. v. Alphapharm (affirmed non-obviousness)

"Passing" was probably meant to mean "Overcoming"?
