On February 9, 2015, ALJ Thomas B. Pender issued Order No. 5 in Certain Wireless Headsets (Inv. No. 337-TA-943).

By way of background, this investigation is based on a December 8, 2014 complaint and December 24, 2014 supplement to the complaint filed by One-E-Way, Inc. of Pasadena, California alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain wireless headsets that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,865,258 and 8,131,391.  See our January 8, 2015 and January 14, 2015 posts for more details on the complaint and notice of investigation, respectively.

In Order No. 3, ALJ Pender set May 13, 2016 as the target date for completing the investigation (which is approximately sixteen months after institution of the investigation).  In addition, ALJ Pender noted, inter alia, that the Markman hearing will take place on May 26, 2015; the evidentiary hearing will commence on October 13, 2015 and conclude no later than October 19, 2015; and the initial determination will be issued on January 13, 2016.
