By way of background, this investigation is based on a July 24, 2012 complaint filed by Technology Properties Limited LLC and Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC, both of Cupertino, California, and Patriot Scientific Corporation of Carlsbad, California alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain wireless consumer electronics devices and components thereof that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,809,336 (the ‘336 patent).  See our July 26, 2012 and August 24, 2012 posts for more details on the complaint and notice of investigation, respectively.

According to the September 6, 2013 notice, ALJ Glidea held in the ID that no violation of Section 337 has occurred in this investigation with respect to the various respondents.  ALJ Gildea further determined that a domestic industry exists that practices the ‘336 patent. 

Lastly, the notice issued by ALJ Gildea released only the information noted above.  We will provide additional information once the public version of the ID issues in its entirety.
