On July 15, 2009, ALJ Carl C. Charneski issued Order No. 110 in Certain Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Using Tungsten Metallization and Products Containing Same (337-TA-648).  In the Order, ALJ Charneski stayed the investigation as to respondent Qimonda AG (“Qimonda”) in view of a July 2, 2009 Order issued by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (the “Bankruptcy Court”).

In the Order, ALJ Charneski noted that the Bankruptcy Court issued a preliminary injunction ordering that the ITC investigation be stayed with respect to Qimonda “pending a determination on the Recognition Order.” ALJ Charneski further noted that the “Bankruptcy Court’s Order does not extend to any of the other respondents in this investigation” and “the hearing in this investigation will commence on July 20, 2009.”
