On May 9, 2014, ALJ Dee Lord issued Order No. 10 in Certain Television Sets, Television Receivers, Television Tuners, and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-910).

By way of background, this investigation is based on a January 28, 2014 complaint filed by Cresta Technology Corp. of Santa Clara, California (“Cresta”) alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain television sets, television receivers, television tuners, and components thereof that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,075,585, 7,265,792, and 7,251,466. See our January 30, 2014 and March 24, 2014 posts for more details on the complaint and Notice of Investigation, respectively.

According to Order No. 10, ALJ Lord denied a request submitted by Respondents Silicon Laboratories, Inc.; Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.; Samsung Electronics America, Inc.; LG Electronics Inc.; LG Electronics U.S.A.; MaxLinear, Inc.; Sharp Corp.; Sharp Electronics Corp.; and Vizio, Inc. proposing that the ALJ adopt a procedure whereby a claim construction decision on one disputed claim term be issued early in the investigation. Specifically, ALJ Lord noted Cresta’s opposition and determined to deny the request because “the parties do not agree that an early decision on claim construction would streamline this investigation.”
