On August 26, 2010, ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued Order No. 31, Order No. 34, and Order No. 35 in Certain Mobile Communications and Computer Devices and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-704).

In Order Nos. 31 and 34, ALJ Bullock denied Respondents Nokia Corporation and Nokia, Inc.’s (collectively, “Nokia”) motions for summary determination of invalidity and for Complainant Apple Inc.’s (“Apple”) alleged failure to satisfy the domestic industry requirement.  Similarly, in Order No. 35, ALJ Bullock denied Apple’s summary determination motion that Nokia is not licensed to practice three of the disputed patents.  In denying the three motions, ALJ Bullock determined that genuine issues of material fact remained and thus summary determination was inappropriate.
