r 12, 2011, ALJ E. James Gildea issued Order No. 50 in Certain Motion-Sensitive Sound Effects Devices and Image Display Devices and Components and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-773).  In the Order, ALJ Gildea determined that while he previously found that an early Markman hearing would be useful in this investigation, the parties who made submissions in support of an early Markman are no longer participating in the investigation.  Further, the only parties remaining in the case – Complainant Ogma, LLC, Respondent JAKKS Pacific, Inc., and the Commission Investigative Staff – have requested that claim construction issues be decided solely on the submitted briefing.  Accordingly, ALJ Gildea granted the parties’ joint request and canceled the October 17, 2011 Markman hearing and any related deadlines associated with the hearing.
