The complainant named eight respondents, including Pioneer Corporation of Japan and Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. of Long Beach, California (collectively “Pioneer”). The investigation has been terminated against all respondents other than Pioneer.
On September 22, 2009, the Administrative Law Judge issued his final Initial Determination (ID), finding no violation of section 337 by Pioneer. On November 23, 2009, the Commission determined to review in part the ID. The Commission's notice requested that the parties submit briefs on remedy, public interest and bonding, as well as on specific patent-related questions. 74 FR 62589 (Nov. 30, 2009). The notice also solicited written submissions from interested government agencies, and any other interested parties on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Id. at 62591. Opening briefing is presently due on December 7, 2009, and reply briefing is due on December 14, 2009. Id. On November 30, 2009, Honeywell and Pioneer filed a Joint Motion to Extend Briefing Schedule, requesting that the Commission extend the opening and reply briefing deadlines to December 30, 2009 and January 7, 2010, respectively.
