We are extremely pleased with the ALJ's latest determination and look forward to the Commission's final determination in July.
Ipoh, Malaysia (Vocus) March 25, 2010
Carsem, a leading provider of turnkey packaging and test services to the semiconductor industry, announced today that an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) has issued a Supplemental Initial Determination (ID) in Carsem's on-going patent litigation with Amkor Technology in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, D.C., ITC Investigation No. 337-TA-501
Following the Commission’s Notice of Reversal and Remand that was issued in February this year, the ALJ has now determined that all of Amkor’s asserted patent claims are invalid, not infringed, and/or not enforceable at the ITC, and that Carsem has not violated Section 337 of the Tariff Act by importing the MLP products Amkor had accused of infringement.
The ALJ’s Supplemental ID will be reviewed by the full Commission, which is scheduled to render a final determination by July 20, 2010.
Peter Yates, Carsem's Group Managing Director, stated, "We are extremely pleased with the ALJ’s latest determination and look forward to the Commission’s final determination in July.”
