Further to our October 15, 2012 post, on November 15, 2012, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 3 in Certain Reduced Folate Nutraceutical Products and L-Methylfolate Raw Ingredients Used Therein (Inv. No. 337-TA-857).

In the Order, ALJ Essex set October 18, 2013 as the target date for completing the investigation (which is approximately 12 months after institution of the investigation).  Therefore, any final initial determination is due no later than July 18, 2013.

In addition, ALJ Essex directed the parties to submit proposed procedural schedules by November 26, 2012.  ALJ Essex instructed the parties to propose schedules that account for a prehearing conference and tutorial on March 22, 2013, and a hearing that commences on March 25, 2013.
