On October 16, 2012, CalTech and STMicro jointly moved to terminate the investigation based upon a settlement agreement between CalTech and STMicro. On October 26, 2012, RIM and Nokia filed a separate joint motion to terminate the investigation based on the same settlement agreement between CalTech and STMicro. Neither motion was opposed. On November 8, 2012, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 9) granting both motions to terminate the investigation. The ALJ found no indication that termination of the investigation based on the settlement agreement would have an adverse impact on the public interest. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. The investigation is terminated. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in Part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210). Issued: December 10, 2012. By order of the Commission. Lisa R. Barton, Acting Secretary to the Commission.
