On September 6, 2011, ALJ Robert K. Rogers, Jr. issued Order No. 4 in Certain Light-Emitting Diodes and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-802).

According to the Order, ALJ Rogers set January 30, 2013 as the target date (which is 17 months after institution of the investigation).  ALJ Rogers further indicated that the initial determination on alleged violation shall be due on October 1, 2012.

ALJ Rogers determined that there is good cause for setting a 17-month target date in this investigation in light of the 3 respondents and 183 patent claims at issue.  ALJ Rogers also explained that “this investigation was instituted only 9 days after the last investigation assigned to me, Inv. No. 337-TA-798.”
