Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 79910 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 250 / Tuesday, December 30, 2008 / Notices 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 investigation, finding that the active respondents did not violate section 337. Specifically, he found that while the majority of accused gloves infringe claims 17, 18, and 19 of the ‘616 patent, the asserted claims are invalid. He 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. On October 24, 2008, the Commission determined to review a portion of the ALJ’s ID and requested briefing from the parties on the issues under review and on remedy, the public interest, and bonding. On November 10, 2008, complainant Tillotson, certain respondents, and the Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) each filed responses to the Commission’s request for written submissions. On November 17, 2008, complainant, certain respondents, and the IA filed reply submissions. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s ID and the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined to affirm the ALJ’s determination that the respondents did not violate section 337 because the asserted claims are invalid under 35 U.S.C. 251 and 37 CFR 1.175(a) (1996), but will clarify a portion of his claim construction in a separate opinion. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:55 Dec 29, 2008 Jkt 217001 amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.45 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.45). By order of the Commission. Issued: December 22, 2008. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc.
