  • Further to our March 9, 2011 post, on March 30, 2011, ALJ Carl C. Charneski issued Order Nos. 5 and 6 in Certain Display Devices, Including Digital Televisions and Monitors (Inv. No. 337-TA-765).

    In Order No. 5, ALJ Charneski set August 13, 2012 as the target date for completing this investigation (which is approximately 17 months after institution of the investigation).  ALJ Charneski determined that “a 17-month target date is reasonable given the complexity of the technology and the number of patents and claims in issue in this investigation.”  ALJ Charneski further determined that an initial determination on any violation of Section 337 shall be due on April 13, 2012.

    In Order No. 6, ALJ set the procedural schedule which provides for submission of disputed claim terms and proposed claim constructions and a nine-day evidentiary hearing commencing on January 3, 2012.
