Further to our May 23, 2013 and June 4, 2013 posts, on June 6, 2013, ALJ Robert K. Rogers, Jr. issued Order No. 6 in Certain Two-Way Global Satellite Communication Devices, System and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-854). 

By way of background, on April 10, 2013, BriarTek IP, Inc. of Alexandria, Virginia (“BriarTek”) filed an enforcement complaint alleging that DeLorme Publishing Co., Inc. and DeLorme InReach LLC d/b/a InReach LLC (collectively, “DeLorme”)—both of Yarmouth, Maine—violated the consent order entered in the underlying investigation.  See our April 11, 2013 post for additional details.

According to Order No. 6, ALJ Rogers set the procedural schedule for this enforcement proceeding and required an early exchange of disputed claim terms and proposed constructions.  ALJ Rogers also noted that the evidentiary hearing in this matter will commence on November 4, 2013; the Initial Determination is due on February 19, 2014; and the target date for completing the investigation is May 19, 2014.
