On December 13, 2012, ALJ David P. Shaw issued Order No. 130 in Certain Personal Data and Mobile Communications Devices and Related Software (Inv. No. 337-TA-710).

By way of background, Apple Inc. (“Apple”) filed an enforcement complaint on June 4, 2012 alleging that Respondents High Tech Computer Corp. and HTC America, Inc. (collectively, “HTC”) violated the Commission’s December 19, 2011 limited exclusion order in the underlying investigation.  See our June 6, 2012 post for more details on Apple’s enforcement complaint against HTC.

According to Order No. 130, ALJ Shaw granted Apple and HTC’s renewed joint motion to terminate the enforcement proceeding based on a Patent License and Settlement Agreement.
