Further to our June 16, 2014 post, on June 18, 2014, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued a notice regarding conclusions of law for the Initial Determination (“ID”) in Certain Wireless Devices With 3G And/Or 4G Capabilities and Components Thereof (Inv. 337-TA-868).

According to the notice, ALJ Essex determined that no violation of Section 337 has occurred in the importation into the U.S., the sale for importation, or the sale within the U.S. after importation of certain wireless devices with 3G and/or 4G capabilities and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,190,966; 7,286,847; or 7,941,151 (collectively, the “asserted patents”).  Specifically, ALJ Essex determined, among other things, that the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement has not been satisfied for the asserted patents.  

The notice regarding conclusions of law issued by ALJ Essex released only limited information.  We will provide additional information once the public version of the ID issues in its entirety.
