The United States Court for the District of Delaware today ordered high-ranking company officials with decision-making power from both Apple and HTC to meet in Delaware to discuss a potential settlement to the patent litigation between the companies. Apple won a U.S. International Trade Commission exclusion order over HTC in late 2011 regarding a single smartphone patent related to data tapping. This week, shipments of new HTC smartphones were halted at customs while they are checked for compliance with the order. The hold up at customs has forced Sprint to delay the launch of its 2012 flagship smartphone, the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The talks, which will be moderated by Magistrate Judge Sherry R. Fallon, are scheduled to take place August 28. It’s not clear which managers from the companies will attend. Separately, Apple and Samsung are scheduled to meet Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22 to discuss settling their own patent suits.
