On December 11, 2012, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 29 granting Complainant Graphics Properties Holdings, Inc. ("GPH") and Respondent Apple , Inc.'s ("Apple") joint motion to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement in Certain Consumer Electronics and Display Devices and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-836).

As required by Commission Rule 210.50(b)(2), ALJ Essex determined that the settlement agreement between GPH and Apple did not impose any undue burdens on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United States economy, the production of like or directly competitive articles in the United States, and United States consumers.  Accordingly, the ALJ granted the motion and terminated the investigation with respect to Apple.
