Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 21 / Thursday, February 2, 2017 / Notices Secretary to submit a report to Congress within 120 days of enactment (by April 14, 2017) on programmatic goals to address the deferred maintenance needs of Indian dams and funding prioritization criteria for distributing funds from the High-Hazard Indian Dam Safety Deferred Maintenance Fund and the Low-Hazard Indian Dam Safety Deferred Maintenance Fund. Section 3101 establishes a program to address the deferred maintenance needs of Indian dams and authorizes $32.75 million per year ($22.75 million designated for high- and significanthazard potential dams and $10 million designated for low-hazard potential dams), plus accrued interest, for each of the fiscal years 2017 through 2023. Subject to appropriation, the funds would be available to carry out maintenance, repair, and replacement activities for qualified Indian dams. Eligible high-hazard potential dams are those included in the safety of dams program established under the Indian Dams Safety Act of 1994 that are either: (1) Owned by the Federal Government and managed by BIA, including dams managed under Indian SelfDetermination contracts or compacts; or (2) have deferred maintenance documented by BIA. Eligible low-hazard potential dams are those covered under the Indian Dams Safety Act of 1994 and are either: (1) Owned by the Federal Government and managed by BIA, including dams managed under Indian Self-Determination contracts or compacts; or (2) have deferred maintenance documented by BIA. 9075 II. Tribal Consultation Sessions The BIA will be hosting three inperson Tribal consultation sessions. Additionally, two webinars will be held for Tribes unable to make an in-person session. Tribes were notified of these consultation sessions by letter. Tribes potentially affected by the Indian Dam Safety component of the WIIN Act include all Tribes because, while BIA has an inventory of high-hazard potential dams, no such inventory yet exists for low-hazard potential dams. For this reason, BIA also asks that Tribes notify the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice of any low-hazard potential dams subject to the Indian Dams Act of 1994. Tribal consultation sessions will be held on the following dates at the following locations: Date Time Location Monday, February 6, 2017 .............. 1 p.m.–5 p.m. Local Time ........... Wednesday, February 8, 2017 ........ 1 p.m.–5 p.m. Local Time ........... Friday, February 10, 2017 ............... 1 p.m.–5 p.m. Local Time ........... Monday, February 13, 2017 ............

Specifically, he found that Bosch did not directly or contributorily infringe the ’712 and ’455 patents, but found that Bosch’s REAXX table saw directly infringed the ’927 and ’279 patents and that Bosch’s activation cartridges contributorily infringed the ’927 and ’279 patents. He also found that Bosch had failed to show that any of the patent claims were invalid, and that SawStop satisfied the domestic industry requirement with respect to all four patents. Based on these findings, on September 20, 2016, the ALJ recommended that a limited exclusion order issue against Bosch’s infringing products, that a cease and desist order issue against Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, and that the bond during the period of Presidential review be set at zero percent. He also recommended that the scope of the exclusion order and cease and desist order specifically cover the contributorily infringing activation cartridges. On September 26, 2016, SawStop and Bosch each petitioned for review of the ID. On October 4, 2016, the parties opposed each other’s petitions. On November 10, 2016, the Commission determined not to review the ID, and requested briefing from the parties and the public on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. The Commission received responsive submissions from SawStop, Bosch, and the PowerTool Institute, Inc. on November 22, 2016, and reply submissions from SawStop and Bosch on December 2, 2016. The Commission has determined that the appropriate remedy is a limited exclusion order prohibiting the entry of table saws incorporating active injury mitigation technology and components thereof that infringe claims 8 and 12 of the ’927 patent and claims 1, 6, 16, and 17 of the ’279 patent, and an order that VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:31 Feb 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 Robert Bosch Tool Corp. cease and desist from importing, selling, marketing, advertising, distributing, offering for sale, transferring (except for exportation), or soliciting U.S. agents or distributors of imported table saws incorporating active injury mitigation technology and components thereof that infringe claims 8 and 12 of U.S. Patent the ’927 patent and claims 1, 6, 16, and 17 of the ’279 patent.

    On January 27, 2016, SawStop moved for a summary determination that 
it satisfied the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement. 
On February 8, 2016, Bosch indicated that it did not oppose the motion.

that SawStop satisfied the economic prong of the domestic industry 
requirement. Order No. 10 (Mar. 22, 2016), not reviewed, Notice (Apr. 
21, 2016).
    On September 9, 2016, the ALJ issued his final initial 
determination finding a violation of section 337 with respect to the

the '927 and '279 patents. He also found that Bosch had failed to show 
that any of the patent claims were invalid, and that SawStop satisfied

limited exclusion order prohibiting the entry of table saws

determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 
337(d) and (f), 19 U.S.C. 1337(d) and (f), do not preclude the issuance 
of the limited exclusion order or cease and desist order. The

is required during the period of Presidential review, 19 U.S.C. 
1337(j). Commissioner Kieff dissents as to the bond determination, and 
writes separately to explain his views both concerning the basis for
