ITC Judge Thomas Pender

The Apple vs. Samsung legal battle continues with the latest action taking place at the International Trade Commission. Judge Thomas B. Pender has moved back the start of the court's investigation by 6 days to October 25th. The investigation revolves around the same devices that were involved in the U.S. District Court patent case that ended with a jury awarding Apple $1.05 billion. Judge Pender expects the ITC investigation to end with a final ruling four months later on February 25th 2013.

Judge Pender's heavy caseload is the reason for the 6 day delay in the start of the investigation. The judge has another two cases involving Apple on his schedule including one claim filed by HTC and other involving HTC subsidiary VIA Technologies. Unlike the Federal court which can provide financial relief but rarely bans the import or sale of a product, the ITC leans toward granting injunctive relief over applying a financial penalty. This means that the same Samsung devices that Apple failed to win a ban on in District court could end up getting banned by the ITC.

The real question is what is Pender like? He's gotta have more experience in this field than Koh does, hopefully anyway.
