Netlist, Inc. shares were on fire in Friday's trading session, closing the day up 91.84% on higher volume than usual. The company announced that the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued a claim construction order in Investigation No. 337-TA-1089 (the 1089 Investigation) of SK hynix RDIMM and LRDIMM enterprise memory products. Traders were reacting with excitement as the order was favorable to Netlist with regard to both of its asserted patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 9,606,907, and 9,535,623 and the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) sided with Netlist on the key claim construction issues at the heart of the 1089 Investigation. CEO of the company, C.K. Hong, stated, "We are very pleased with the order and believe this is an important turning point in our dispute with SK hynix . In our view, the claim construction order was thorough, well-reasoned, and vindicates our belief as to the strength of our fundamental IP. This interpretation of the patents puts us in a strong position with respect to infringement, which was the only issue we didn't win in our first ITC action. The order gives us significant momentum heading into the trials scheduled later this year in both the ITC and in Germany."
