Download as PDF 40732 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 134 / Thursday, July 14, 2005 / Notices subject articles from entry into the United states, and/or (2) a cease and desist order that could result in the respondent being required to cease and desist from engaging in unfair action in the importation and sale of such articles. Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities involving other types of entry are either adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see In the Matter of Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843 (December 1994) (Commission Opinion). When the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the President has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under a bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed. Written Submissions: The parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested persons are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Such submissions should address the ALJ’s recommended determination on remedy and bonding. Complainant and the Commission investigative attorney are also requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainant is further requested to state the expiration date of the ‘600 patent and the HTSUS numbers VerDate jul<14>2003 18:32 Jul 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 under which the infringing products are imported. The main written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than July 18, 2005. Response submissions must be filed no later than July 25, 2005. No further submissions will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document and 12 true copies thereof with the Office of the Secretary on or before the deadlines stated above. Any person desiring to submit a document (or portions thereof) to the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment unless the information has already been granted such treatment during the proceedings. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary of the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 CFR 210.5. Documents for which confidential treatment is granted by the Commission will be treated accordingly. All nonconfidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary. This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and sections 210.42, 210.43, and 210.50 of the Commission’s Interim Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42, 210.43, and 210.50).

Proposed Style Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure

    The Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Federal Rules of 
Civil Procedure has completed its style revision of the Civil Rules in 
accordance with uniform drafting guidelines. The restyling of the Civil 
Rules is the third in a series of comprehensive revisions to simplify, 
clarify, and make more uniform all of the federal procedural rules.

Proposed Amendments Separate From Style Revision Project

    The proposed changes are intended to be primarily stylistic only. 
However, the Advisory Committee's extensive style review revealed 
ambiguities and

[[Page 40733]]

inconsistencies in the rules that required correction. The Advisory 
Committee proposed a small number of minor ``style/substance'' 
amendments that make very modest, noncontroversial changes to the 
rules. For convenience, the ``style/substance'' amendments are 
published together with the proposed style rules, but are separate from 
the style project. The style/substance amendments to the Civil Rules 
are: 4, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 26, 30, 31, 36, 40, 71A, and 78.
    The text of the proposed rules amendments and the accompanying 
Committee Notes can be found at the United States Federal Courts' Home 
Page at http://www.uscourts.gov/rules.
    The Judicial Conference Committee on Rules of Practice and 
Procedure submits these proposed rules amendments for public comment. 
All comments and suggestions with respect to them must be placed in the 
hands of the Secretary as soon as convenient and, in any event, not 
later than December 15, 2005. All written comments on the proposed rule 
amendments can be sent by one of the following three ways: by overnight 
mail to Peter G. McCabe, Secretary, Committee on Rules of Practice and 
Procedure of the Judicial Conference of the United States, Thurgood 
Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, Washington, DC 20544; by 
electronic mail at http://www.uscourts.gov/rules; or by facsimile to 
Peter G. McCabe at (202) 502-1766. In accordance with established 
procedures all comments submitted on the proposed amendments are 
available to public inspection.
    Public hearings are scheduled to be held on the proposed style and 
``style/substantive'' amendments on the following dates:
     October 26, 2005, in San Francisco, California;
     November 18, 2005, in Chicago, Illinois; and
     December 2, 2005, in Washington, DC.
