On March 25, 2011, ALJ E. James Gildea issued a notice regarding the Final Initial Determination and Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bond (“ID”) in Certain Electronic Devices, Including Mobile Phones, Portable Music Players, and Computers (Inv. No. 337-TA-701).

By way of background, the Complainants in this investigation are Nokia Corporation and Nokia Inc.  The Respondent is Apple Inc.

According to the notice, ALJ Gildea determined that no violation of Section 337 had occurred by Apple in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, or the sale within the United States after importation of certain electronic devices, including mobile phones, portable music players, or computers by reason of infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,518,957 (the ‘957 patent), 6,714,091 (the ‘091 patent), 6,834,181 (the ‘181 patent), 6,895,256 (the ‘256 patent), or 6,924,789 (the ‘789 patent).

ALJ Gildea also determined that a domestic industry exists that practices the ‘789 patent, but not the ‘091 patent, the ‘181 patent, and the ‘256 patent.

The notice issued by ALJ Gildea released only the first four pages of the ID.  We will provide additional information after the public version of the ID issues in its entirety.
