The ID’s finding included subsidiary findings that SIPCO failed to show infringement of any asserted claim of the ’893 or ’708 patents and that all of the remaining asserted claims of the ’708 patent were invalid.

The Commission has determined not to review the remainder of the ID. On review, the Commission has determined to affirm the ID’s finding of no violation of section 337 with regard to the ’708 patent and the ’893 patent. In addition, the Commission has determined to vacate certain portions of the final ID. The Commission opinion is issued concurrently herewith. The investigation is hereby terminated.
