The existing bounds from CDF on the masses of the fourth generation quarks, t{sup '} and b{sup '}, are reexamined. The bound of 256 GeV on the t{sup '} mass assumes that the primary decay of the t{sup '} is into q+W, which is not the case for a substantial region of parameter space. The bound of 268 GeV on the b{sup '} mass assumes that the branching ratio for b{sup '}{yields}b+Z is very large, which is not only not true for much of parameter space, but is never true for b{sup '} masses above… Expand
