ACTION: Sanction for breaches of Commission administrative protective order. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. International Trade Commission has imposed a sanction for the breach of the administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) issued in this investigation. The Commission determined that the law firm of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP (‘‘Quinn Emanuel’’) breached the APO by failing to adequately control access to confidential business information (‘‘CBI’’) in the investigation and litigation in the U.S. District for the Northern District of California. As a result, Quinn Emanuel attorneys and employees of complainants Samsung Telecommunications America LLC and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Samsung’’) improperly disclosed CBI to more than 140 unauthorized persons over a fourteenmonth period. Quinn Emanuel is being publicly reprimanded for pervasive problems at the firm in safeguarding CBI.

General information concerning the Commission can also be obtained by accessing its Internet server (https://www.usitc.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Several Quinn Emanuel attorneys inadvertently disclosed CBI designated by respondent Apple Inc. as CBI in the investigation and for cross-use in litigation in the U.S. District for the Northern District of California to persons who were not authorized to access CBI under the APO. A junior associate at Quinn Emanuel failed to fully redact CBI from an expert report prepared for the district court action, and a partner at Quinn Emanuel failed to supervise the junior associate.
