The complainant alleged violations of section 337 in the importation and sale of certain personal computers, monitors, and components thereof, by reason of infringement of seven U.S. patents. HP named Gateway, Inc. of Poway, California (‘‘Gateway’’) as the sole respondent. On August 8, 2005, the ALJ issued a final ID on violation and his recommended determinations on remedy and bonding.
