On April 8, 2009, ALJ Robert K. Rogers, Jr. issued Order Nos. 4 and 5 in Certain Electronic Devices, Including Handheld Wireless Communications Devices (337-TA-673).

Order No. 4 sets the procedural schedule for this investigation and includes a provision for the early exchange of claim construction terms and proposed constructions.  The procedural schedule also indicates that the evidentiary hearing in this investigation will commence on October 26, 2009.

Order No. 5 sets the target date for this investigation.  According to the Order, the Initial Determination will be due on February 24, 2010, and the target date for completion of this investigation is June 24, 2010 (which is 15 months after institution of the investigation). 

As explained in our March 27 post, the ITC voted to institute an investigation in this matter on March 25, 2009 and is based on a February 23, 2009 complaint filed by Saxon Innovations, LLC of Tyler, Texas.
