Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on (202) 205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on November 13, 2006, based on a complaint filed by Norgren, Inc. (‘‘Norgren’’) of Littleton, Colorado. 71 FR 66193 (Nov. 13, 2006). An amended complaint was filed on October 25, 2006. A supplement to the complaint was filed on November 1, 2006. The amended complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, or the sale within the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Apr 17, 2008 Jkt 214001 United States after importation of certain devices for modular compressed air conditioning units and the FRL units they connect by reason of infringement of claims 1–9 of U.S. Patent No. 5,372,392 (‘‘the ’392 patent’’). The amended complaint also alleged that a domestic industry exists with regard to the ’392 patent under subsection (a)(2) of section 337. The amended complaint named SMC Corporation of Japan; SMC Corporation of America of Indianapolis, Indiana (collectively, ‘‘SMC’’); AIRTAC of China; and MFD Pneumatics (‘‘MFD’’) of Chicago, Illinois as the respondents and requested a limited exclusion order and a cease and desist order. On July 13, 2007, the Commission determined not to review an ID terminating the investigation with respect to MFD and AIRTAC on the basis of a consent order stipulation and consent order. On February 13, 2008, the ALJ issued his final ID finding no violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337). Specifically, the ALJ found that there had been an importation of SMC’s accused products and that none of the accused products infringe the asserted claims of the ’392 patent. He also found that the asserted claims are not invalid due to obviousness. He further found that Norgren satisfies the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’392 patent. On February 25, 2008, the ALJ issued a recommended determination on remedy and bonding in the event the Commission reversed his finding of no violation of section 337. On February 25, 2008, Norgren and SMC each filed a separate petition for review of the ID. The Commission Investigative Attorney (‘‘IA’’) did not file a petition for review. On March 3, 2008, Norgren and SMC filed responses in opposition to each other’s petitions for review, and the IA filed her response in opposition to both petitions. On March 5, 2008, the Commission determined to extend the deadline for determining whether to review the ID by 14 days, i.e., until April 14, 2008. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID and the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined not to review the ALJ’s determination and has terminated this investigation with a finding of no violation. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42–45 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42–45).
