Chief Administrative Law Judge Paul J. Luckern has announced he will retire. Chief Judge Luckern has served as an ALJ since 1984 and Chief ALJ since 2008, making him the longest-serving ALJ at the International Trade Commission, with deep technical knowledge as well as expertise in Section 337 investigations.

It is expected, based on historical timelines, that a new ALJ will be appointed within several months of Luckern’s retirement.
