On June 2, 2016, Chief ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued Order No. 19 in Certain Automated Teller Machines and Point of Sale Devices and Associated Software Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-958).

By way of background, this investigation is based on a complaint filed by Global Cash Access, Inc. (now called Everi Payments Inc., or “Everi”) alleging violation of Section 337 by Respondents NRT Technology Corp. and NRT Technologies, Inc. (collectively, “NRT”) in the importation and sale of certain automated teller machines and point-of-sale devices and associated software that infringe one or more claims of the ‘792 patent. See our May 15, 2015 and June 4, 2015 posts for more details on the complaint and Notice of Investigation, respectively.

According to the Order, Chief ALJ Bullock granted Everi’s motion seeking to terminate the investigation in its entirety based on a withdrawal of the complaint against NRT with respect to allegations regarding unfair competition and unfair acts.
