SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The underlying investigation was instituted on May 7, 2007, based on a complaint filed by Global Locate, Inc., a subsidiary of Broadcom Corporation (collectively, ‘‘Broadcom’’). 72 FR 25777 (2007). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, or the sale within the United States after importation of certain GPS devices and products containing the same by reason of infringement of various claims of U.S. Patents. The complaint in the underlying investigation named various respondents. On January 15, 2009, the Commission found a violation of section 337 by the respondents by reason of infringement of all asserted patents. The Commission issued a limited exclusion order and also cease-and-desist orders against certain respondents. Respondents subsequently appealed the Commission’s final determination to the United States Court of Appeals for Federal Circuit (‘‘Federal Circuit’’). On April 12, 2010, the Federal Circuit affirmed the Commission’s Final Determination in all respects. See SiRF Tech., Inc. v. Int’l Trade Comm’n, 601 F.3d 1319 (Fed. Cir. 2010). On August 16, 2010, the Commission instituted modification proceedings based on a petition seeking modification of the Commission’s remedial orders filed by the respondents. On December 7, 2010, the Commission also instituted enforcement proceedings based on an enforcement complaint filed by Broadcom. These proceedings were terminated on February 28, 2011, based on a settlement agreement between Broadcom and the respondents. On January 31, 2011, Broadcom and the respondents filed a joint motion for rescission of the remedial orders pursuant to the settlement agreement. The Commission has determined that the settlement agreement satisfies the requirement of Commission Rule 210.76 (a)(1) (19 CFR 210.76(a)(1)) that there be changed conditions of fact or law. The Commission therefore has issued an order rescinding the limited exclusion order and cease and desist orders previously issued in this investigation. 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 210.76(a)(1) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.76(a)(1)).

City of Alameda, et al., Civ. No. C 09–05684 RS. The United States of America and the People of the State of California ex rel. California State Water Resources Control Board and California Regional Water Quality Control Board, San Francisco Bay Region (together ‘‘Water Boards’’), and Plaintiff-Intervenor San Francisco Baykeeper (‘‘Baykeeper’’), brought claims under Sections 301 and 402 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq., against seven municipal defendants, including the City of Alameda, the City of Albany, the City of Berkeley, the City of Emeryville, the City of Oakland, the City of Piedmont and the Stege Sanitary District (together ‘‘Satellite Communities’’). The United States, the Water Boards and Baykeeper allege that the Satellite Communities are in violation of the Clean Water Act and their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (‘‘NPDES’’) Permits because they have unlawful sanitary sewer overflows (‘‘SSOs’’) during wet weather. They also allege that the Satellite Communities are in violation of the operation and maintenance provisions of their NPDES Permits because they contribute excessive flow to treatment systems owned and operated by the East Bay Municipal Utilities District (‘‘EBMUD’’), which causes EBMUD to violate the Clean Water Act and its own NPDES permit. The proposed Stipulated Order for Preliminary Relief complements a January 2009 interim settlement with EBMUD. Among other things, the EBMUD settlement requires EBMUD to study flow from the Satellite Communities and make recommendations to EPA and the Water Boards as to how that flow can be reduced to prevent discharges from three wet weather facilities (‘‘WWFs’’). This Stipulated Order for Preliminary Relief represents an interim solution VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:50 Mar 18, 2011 Jkt 223001 that will move the parties toward a final resolution of the claims in the complaint. It will require the Satellite Communities to gather information that EBMUD will use to determine how to reduce flows to its system. It will also require the Satellite Communities to begin taking steps to reduce inflow and infiltration into their collection systems. This settlement, together with the earlier interim settlement with EBMUD, will provide EBMUD, EPA and the Water Boards with the information necessary to achieve a final settlement that will eliminate discharges from the WWFs. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the proposed Stipulated Order for Preliminary Relief. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcommentees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O. Box 7611, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20044–7611, and should refer to United States et al. v. City of Alameda et al., DJ No. 90–5–1– 1–09361/1. The proposed Stipulated Order for Preliminary Relief may be examined at the Region 9 Office of the Environmental Protection Agency, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA, 94105. During the public comment period, the proposed Stipulated Order for Preliminary Relief may also be examined on the following Department of Justice Web site, http:// www.usdoj.gov/enrd/ Consent_Decrees.html.
