ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. International Trade Commission has determined to review the Remand Determination (‘‘RID’’) issued by the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) in the abovecaptioned investigation on April 1, 2009. The Commission has also determined to extend the target date for completion of the investigation to August 3, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul M. Bartkowski, Office of the General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 708–5432. 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. VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:06 Jun 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 The Commission instituted this investigation on December 31, 2007, based on a complaint filed by INEOS Fluor Holdings Ltd., INEOS Fluor Ltd., and INEOS Fluor Americas LLC (collectively, ‘‘Ineos’’). 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 R–134a coolant (otherwise known as 1,1,1,2tetrafluoroethane) by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent No. 5,744,658. Complainants subsequently added allegations of infringement with regard to United States Patent Nos. 5,382,722 and 5,559,276 (‘‘the ‘276 patent’’), but only claim 1 of the ‘276 patent remains at issue in this investigation. The complaint named two respondents, Sinochem Modern Environmental Protection Chemicals (Xi’an) Co., Ltd. and Sinochem Ningbo Ltd. Two additional respondents were subsequently added: Sinochem Environmental Protection Chemicals (Taicang) Co., Ltd. and Sinochem (U.S.A.) Inc. The four respondents are collectively referred to as ‘‘Sinochem.’’ On December 1, 2008, the ALJ issued his final ID, finding that Sinochem had violated section 337. He concluded that respondents’ accused process infringed claim 1 of the ‘276 patent and that the domestic industry requirement had been met. He also found that claim 1 was not invalid and that it was not unenforceable. The Commission determined to review the ALJ’s final ID with regard to the effective filing date of the asserted claim, anticipation, and obviousness, to supplement the ALJ’s reasoning regarding the effective filing date, and to remand the investigation to the ALJ to conduct further proceedings related to anticipation and obviousness. To accommodate the remand, the Commission extended the target date to June 1, 2009 and instructed the ALJ to issue the RID by April 1, 2009. The ALJ issued the RID on April 1, 2009. The RID concluded that Sinochem’s arguments concerning anticipation and obviousness were waived under the ALJ’s ground rules and, alternatively, that the arguments were without merit. Sinochem filed a petition for review of the RID. The Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) and Ineos opposed Sinochem’s petition. Subsequently, Sinochem filed a motion to strike and for leave to file a reply to Ineos’s and the IA’s oppositions. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s RID and the submissions of the parties, the Commission has determined to review the RID in its entirety. To assist in its review, and in order to more fully analyze Sinochem’s ‘‘admission’’-based arguments, the Commission is interested in receiving further briefing on the following questions: (1) Based upon the undisputed scope and content of the prior art as set forth in the ‘276 patent specification and as presented by the expert witnesses at trial, what differences exist between the prior art and claim 1 of the ‘276 patent? (2) Based on your answer to question (1), would claim 1 have been obvious in light of the remand references to a person of ordinary skill in the art under KSR International, Co. v. Teleflex Co., 550 U.S. 398 (2007)? (3) Are the ALJ’s conclusions regarding waiver consistent with Commission Rule 210.14(c)? If not, what is the effect on the ALJ’s conclusions in the remand determination? (4) Does the exception to the ALJ’s ground rule reciting that ‘‘contentions of which a party is not aware and could not be aware in the exercise of reasonable diligence at the time of filing the pre-hearing statements’’ apply to Respondents’ contentions regarding admissions elicited during the hearing? If so, what is the effect on the ALJ’s conclusions in the remand determination? The Commission has determined to extend the target date for completion of this investigation to August 3, 2009, in order to provide adequate time for review of the RID. The Commission has determined to deny as moot Sinochem’s motion to strike and for leave to file a reply. Written Submissions: The parties to the investigation are requested to file written submissions on the issues under review. The submissions should be concise and thoroughly referenced to the record in this investigation, including references to exhibits and testimony. The written submissions must be filed no later than close of business on June 15, 2009. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on June 25, 2009. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document and 12 true copies thereof on or before the deadlines stated above with the Office of the Secretary. Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must request confidential E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1

required to secure his bid with a bid deposit of cash funds equal to 
10% of the bid amount within 10 days of being notified that the United 
States has accepted his bid. The high bidder's $5,000 registration 
deposit will be applied to make up a portion of the required 10% bid 
deposit. Bid results will also be posted on the Internet at GSA's Web 
site: http://www.auctionrp.com.
    8. The remainder of the full bid price must be paid within 180 
calendar days of the award letter, in the form of a certified check, 
money order, bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. 
dollars to the Bureau of Land Management. Personal checks will not be 
accepted. Failure to pay the full price within the 180 days will 
disqualify the apparent high bidder and cause the entire bid deposit to 
be forfeited to the BLM.
    9. Registration deposits submitted by unsuccessful bidders will be 
returned by GSA.
    10. The BLM may accept or reject any or all offers, or withdraw any 
parcel of land or interest therein from sale, if, in the opinion of the 
BLM authorized officer, consummation of the sale would not be fully 
consistent with FLPMA or other applicable law or is determined to not 
be in the public interest.
    11. Under Federal law, the public lands may only be conveyed to 
U.S. citizens 18 years of age or older; a corporation subject to the 
laws of any State or of the United States; a State, State 
instrumentality, or political subdivision authorized to hold property, 
or an entity legally capable of conveying and holding lands under the 
laws of the State of California. Certification of qualifications, 
including citizenship or corporation or partnership, must be provided 
to the BLM prior to conveyance.
    Additional Information: If not sold, the lands described in this 
Notice may be identified for sale later without further legal notice 
and may be offered for sale by sealed bid, internet auction, or oral 
auction. In order to determine the value, through appraisal, of the 
land proposed to be sold, certain extraordinary assumptions may have 
been made of the attributes and limitations of the lands and potential 
effects of local regulations and policies on potential future land 
uses. Through publication of this Notice, the Bureau of Land Management 
gives notice that these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by 
units of local government.
    It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware of all applicable 
local government policies, laws, and regulations that would affect the 
subject lands, including any required dedication of lands for public 
uses. It is also the buyer's responsibility to be aware of existing or 
projected uses of nearby properties. When conveyed out of Federal 
ownership, the lands will be subject to any applicable reviews and 
approvals by the respective unit of local government for proposed 
future uses, and any such reviews and approvals will be the 
responsibility of the buyer. Any land lacking access from a public road 
or highway will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will 
be the responsibility of the buyer. Information concerning the sale, 
including the reservations, sale procedures and conditions, CERCLA and 
other environmental documents will be available for review at the BLM 
Redding Field Office. Most of this information will be available on the 
Internet at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/redding. The general public 
and interested parties may submit comments regarding the proposed sale 
to the attention of the BLM Redding Field Manager on or before July 20, 
2009. Any adverse comments regarding the proposed sale will be reviewed 
by the California BLM State Director or other authorized official of 
the Department, who may sustain, vacate, or modify this realty action 
in whole or in part. Before including your address, phone number, e-
mail address, or other personal identifying information in your 
comment, be advised that your entire comment--including your personal 
identifying information--may be made

publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to 
withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we 
cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
