ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. International Trade VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:45 Oct 29, 2008 Jkt 211001 Commission has determined to review a portion of the final initial determination (‘‘ID’’) issued by the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) on August 25, 2008, regarding whether there is a violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. * 1337, in the above-captioned consolidated investigation. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michelle Walters, Office of the General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 708–5468. Copies of non-confidential documents filed in connection with this investigation are or will be available for inspection during official business hours (8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 205–2000. General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its Internet server at http://www.usitc.gov. The public record for this investigation may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at http:// edis.usitc.gov. 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 Inv. No. 337-TA– 608 on July 6, 2007, based on a complaint filed by Tillotson Corporation d.b.a. Best Manufacturing Company (‘‘Tillotson’’). The 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, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain nitrile gloves by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent No. Re. 35,616 (‘‘the ’616 patent’’). The complaint named over thirty respondents. The Commission instituted a second investigation, Inv. No. 337–TA–612, on August 22, 2007, based on a complaint filed by Tillotson. That complaint also alleged violations of section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain nitrile gloves by reason of infringement of various claims of the ’616 patent and named seven respondents. On September 19, 2007, the ALJ consolidated Inv. No. 337–TA– 608 with Inv. No. 337–TA–612. On August 25, 2008, the ALJ issued a final ID and recommended determination on remedy and bonding in the above-referenced consolidated PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 investigation, finding that the active respondents did not violate section 337. Specifically, he found that the vast majority of accused gloves infringe claims 17, 18, and 19 of the ’616 patent, but that nine accused gloves do not infringe the asserted claims. He also concluded that when the patentees amended the claims through a reissue application filed more than two years after the grant of the original patent, they improperly enlarged the scope of the claims, rendering them invalid. The ALJ further concluded that the claims are invalid because the patentees filed a defective reissue declaration when applying for the reissue patent. He rejected other arguments of invalidity and unenforceability. Accordingly, the ALJ concluded that respondents had not violated section 337. On September 8, 2008, complainant Tillotson filed a petition for review, as did several respondents. On September 16, 2008, respondents filed a response to complainant’s petition and complainant filed a response to respondents’ petition. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s ID and the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined (1) to review the ALJ’s claim construction of the term ‘‘predetermined pressure,’’ (2) to review the ALJ’s determination of invalidity for a broadening reissue, (3) to review the ALJ’s determination of invalidity for a deficient reissue declaration, (4) to review the ALJ’s determination that the claims are not invalid for failure to disclose a best mode, (5) to review the ALJ’s determination that the claims are not invalid for lack of enablement, and (6) not to review the ALJ’s determinations relating to any of the remaining issues on violation. Finally, the Commission has determined to deny complainant’s request for oral argument. The parties should brief their positions on the issues on review with reference to the applicable law and the evidentiary record. In connection with its review, the Commission is particularly interested in responses to the following questions: 1. Before the ALJ and in its petition for review, complainant asserted that the term ‘‘predetermined pressure’’ means ‘‘the amount of pressure first exerted on the hand by the glove after the glove is donned.’’ Nevertheless, complainant also states in its petition that the ‘‘predetermined pressure’’ must be determined in advance—a limitation that is omitted from its proposed claim construction. Assuming that the ‘‘predetermined pressure’’ must be determined in advance, what does it E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
