    That same day, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 60) 
terminating the investigation. The ALJ found that the motion complied 
with the requirements of Commission Rule 210.21(a) (19 CFR 210.21(a)) 
and that no extraordinary circumstances prohibited granting the motion. 
None of the parties petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has

by the parties to terminate the investigation prior to the evidentiary 
hearing based upon Openwave's stipulation that, under the ALJ's claim
