ITC Judge Sets November 2018 Target for Conclusion of Motorola Complaint
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 | Comments

The conclusion of the patent infringement complaint Motorola Solutions filed against Hytera Communications with the U.S. International Trade Commission is likely a ways off.

Administrative Law Judge Mary Joan McNamara set an 18-month target date, Nov. 6, 2018, for completion of the investigation into Motorola’s complaint. McNamara’s order also set a target date of July 3, 2018, for a final initial determination on the violation.

McNamara’s order lays out a series of deadlines and dates for the case. An evidentiary hearing is scheduled from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2, 2018. The order also includes a scheduled meeting for a potential settlement and a one-day mediation session that must be completed by Jan. 12, 2018. McNamara will not be involved in the mediation or settlement sessions.

Prior to filing its ITC complaint, Motorola Solutions filed a pair of lawsuits alleging patent infringement and theft of trade secrets against Hytera Communications in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. A stay has been placed on the patent infringement case, pending the ITC’s investigation.
