Further to our June 5, 2012 post, on July 9, 2012, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 2 in Certain CMOS Image Sensors and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-846).

In the Order, ALJ Essex set October 7, 2013 as the target date for completing the investigation (which is approximately 16 months after institution of the investigation).  Therefore, any final initial determination is due no later than June 7, 2013. 

In addition, ALJ Essex directed the parties to submit proposed procedural schedules by July 16, 2012.  ALJ Essex instructed the parties to propose schedules that account for a prehearing conference and tutorial on February 8, 2013, and a hearing that commences on February 11, 2013.
