Are you referring to Jim Ivey leaving?  If so, he's not a patent attorney anymore (a Google search is very telling about this).

Ah, that explains it.  We noticed.  He is missed.

Jim, if you see this some day, I hope you're well and have been doing great things.

@snapshot, yeah, but he still had a ton of good knowledge, and still continued to contribute for a couple of years after the OED issues.

I only found out about the OED issues only fairly recently when wondering why he had stopped posting.  Pretty amazing he contributed so much here when he was going through so much difficulty in his professional life.

Hmm, just looked it up, looks kind of like he just gave up.  Though I'm a bit confused by the OED decision where it references a bill for $3,0002.  Twice.  Three thousand, or thirty thousand?  Anyway . . .

A good man with a solid grasp of patent law, who had the courage to use his real name while helping thousands of people here with their IP issues.

We had a couple of seasoned practitioners here for a while who really knew their stuff, like Jim, Dog day pm, JD, and Jeff Sonnabend. Maybe Jeff is still here, but I have not seen him post in a while.

All good people, and if I may say so, all due thanks for their help.

One, or some, may still be posting.  Just under a different name.
