Further to our June 20, 2011 post, on July 21, 2011, Chief ALJ Paul J. Luckern issued Order No. 5 in Certain Flip-Top Vials and Products Using Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-779).

In the Order, ALJ Luckern set September 24, 2012 as the target date for completion of the investigation (which is 15 months after institution of the investigation).  Also, any final initial determination is due no later than “mid-May 2012,” and the evidentiary hearing will commence in “mid February 2012.”

The Order also directs the parties to submit a proposed procedural schedule by no later than July 25, 2011.
