Further to our August 4 post, ALJ E. James Gildea issued Order No. 4: Setting Procedural Schedule in Certain Collaborative System Products and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-682).

According to the Order, ALJ Gildea has provided dates in the procedural schedule for submission of proposed claim constructions for disputed claim terms and noted that “absent a showing of good cause, the parties will be bound by their proposed constructions for disputed claim terms on the date the joint submission of disputed claim terms is due.”

Also, according to the Order, the evidentiary hearing in this matter will commence on April 1, 2010; the Initial Determination is due on August 2, 2010; and the target date for completion of this investigation is December 2, 2010.
