On October 5, 2012, ALJ David P. Shaw issued the public version of Order No. 22 (dated September 6, 2012) denying Complainants LSI Corporation and Agere Systems Inc.’s (collectively, “LSI”) motion to compel Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (“Realtek”) to produce a corporate witness for additional deposition testimony in Certain Audiovisual Components and Products Containing the Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-837).

In the Order, LSI argued that they were entitled to additional testimony on various deposition topics.  On each of the topics, LSI complained that Realtek’s deponent was not fully prepared to discuss certain topics at his deposition and thus failed to provide the requested discovery.  In response, Realtek argued that the deponent fully answered LSI’s questions and provided the requested information.  According to the Order, ALJ Shaw agreed with Realtek’s arguments and found that LSI was not entitled to a second deposition regarding the disputed topics.  Accordingly, ALJ Shaw denied LSI’s motion.
