Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Personal Transporters. The International Trade Commission has terminated patent infringement investigations 337-TA-1007 and -1021 of personal transporters and components thereof with respect to one respondent based on a settlement agreement and release with complainants Segway Inc., DEKA Products Limited Partnership, and Ninebot (Tianjin) Technology Co. Ltd.

Wireless Communication Devices. The ITC has instituted investigation 337-TA-1051 to determine whether imports of LTE wireless communication devices and components thereof, including mobile phones, are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

Complainants LG Electronics Inc., LG Electronics Alabama Inc., and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A. Inc. request that after this investigation the ITC issue a limited exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of infringing products into the U.S., and cease and desist orders, which would require the named respondents to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory. The respondents in this investigation are located in the U.S.
