  • Further to our January 17, 2012 post, on January 24, 2012, ALJ Robert K. Rogers, Jr. issued Order No. 3 in Certain Portable Communication Devices (Inv. No. 337-TA-827).

    According to the Order, ALJ Rogers set July 18, 2013 as the target date (which is 18 months after institution of the investigation).  ALJ Rogers further indicated that the initial determination on alleged violation shall be due on March 18, 2013.

    ALJ Rogers determined that there is good cause for setting an 18-month target date in this investigation since, inter alia, “[t]his investigation includes 21 respondents, 4 patents and 46 claims.”
