On May 13, 2013, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 26 (dated May 10, 2013) in Certain Electronic Imaging Devices (Inv. No. 337-TA-850).

By way of background, ALJ Essex issued Order No. 21 granting Complainant FlashPoint Technology, Inc. (“Flashpoint”) and Respondents Pantech., Co., Ltd. and Pantech Wireless, Inc.’s (collectively, “Pantech”) joint motion to terminate the investigation as to Pantech based on entry of a consent order and an associated letter of intent to execute a final patent license agreement.  See our March 11, 2013 post.  Subsequently, the International Trade Commission remanded the initial determination back to ALJ Essex to allow for FlashPoint and Pantech to file a new motion to terminate after the parties have executed their final patent license agreement.

According to Order No. 26, FlashPoint and Pantech filed a new joint motion to terminate the investigation as to Pantech based on entry of a consent order and the now final, executed patent license agreement.  ALJ Essex granted the joint motion to terminate the investigation as to Pantech based on the consent order and patent license agreement’s compliance with Commission Rule 210.

The investigation remains pending against other respondents.
