ITC Panel to Review Judge's Apple-Samsung Decisions
The U.S. International Trade Commission today indicated that its full panel will review two decisions made earlier this year by a judge regarding the on-going patent spats between Apple and Samsung. In particular, the ITC will look at one decision that found Samsung guilty of infringing on an Apple patent that pertains to selecting text, an a second decision that found Samsung innocent of infringing on an Apple patent that pertains to detecting microphones. Cases overseen by the ITC typically include an initial ruling made by a single administrative law judge which is then reviewed by the full ITC panel. The panel expects to make a final ruling over these matters on August 1.
