The Commission instituted this investigation on March 13, 2000, based on a complaint filed by American Tool Start Printed Page 67762Companies, Inc. (“American Tool”) of Hoffman Estates, Illinois, and Peterson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (“Peterson”) of DeWitt, Nebraska (collectively “complainants”). 65 FR 13307.
On September 6, 2000, complainants filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation asserting that respondents no longer ship infringing product to the United States and do not intend to do so in the future. On September 18, 2000, respondents, Wolfcraft GMbH of Germany and Wolfcraft, Inc. of Itasca, Illinois, filed an opposition to complainants' motion stating that they in fact intend to resume importation of the product in question to the United States. On September 18, 2000, the Commission investigative attorney (IA) filed a response in support of the motion, but argued that it should be construed as a motion for partial termination based on the withdrawal of certain allegations. On September 20, 2000, complainants filed a reply agreeing with IA's suggestion that their motion be construed as one for partial termination. On October 2, 2000, the presiding ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 5) granting complainants' motion for partial withdrawal of the complaint. No petitions for review of the ID were filed.
Copies of the public version of the ID, and all other nonconfidential 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. Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on the matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on 202-205-1810.
