Further to our December 2, 2010 post, on January 5, 2011, ALJ E. James Gildea issued Order No. 3: Setting Procedural Schedule in Certain Products Containing Interactive Program Guide And Parental Controls Technology (Inv. No. 337-TA-747).

In the Order, ALJ Gildea set the procedural schedule for the investigation and provided for the early exchange of claim terms for construction, as well as a January 19, 2011 deadline for the parties to submit proposals as to whether a Markman hearing would be useful in resolving disputed claim terms.
