If you received this notice, the Examining Attorney has received a response by the applicant to a final office action.
The Examining Attorney has received a response by the applicant to a final office action, and affirmed the refusal and the applicant has appealed.
The appeal to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ("TTAB") can come out in favor, affirming the applicant's registration; or it can come out against the applicant and affirm the examiner's objections.
An appeal can be filed by a non-attorney. However, the TTAB follows the federal rules of practice. As such, it is advisable to use an attorney to file an appeal brief in the TTAB.
Once there is a decision from the TTAB, the applicant may desire to appeal that decision.
An appeal from an adverse TTAB decision must be taken through Federal court.
