On March 5, 2013, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 21 in Certain Electronic Imaging Devices (Inv. No. 337-TA-850).

By way of background, the investigation is based on a complaint filed by FlashPoint Technology, Inc. (“Flashpoint”) alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain electronic imaging devices that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,400,471, 6,222,538, 6,504,575, and 6,223,190.  See our June 27, 2012 post for more details on this investigation.

According to the Order, FlashPoint and Respondents Pantech., Co., Ltd. and Pantech Wireless, Inc. (collectively, “Pantech”) filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation as to Pantech based on entry of a consent order.

The investigation remains pending against other respondents.
