SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on December 14, 2000, based on a complainant by Pasco Specialty & Manufacturing Co. (“Pasco”). 65 FR 80454. The sole respondent named in the investigation is Jones Stephens Corporation (“Jones Stephens”). The complaint alleges that respondent Jones Stephens has violated section 337 by importing certain closet flange rings which induce or contribute to the infringement of claims 1-5, 7-9, 11-14 of U.S. Letters Patent 5,890,239 (“the “239 patent), entitled “Method of Reseating a Toilet.”

On April 23, 2001, pursuant to Commission rule 210.18, Jones Stephens filed a motion for summary determination of non-infringement and requested that the investigation be terminated with a finding of no violation of section 337. On June 5, 2001, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 7) granting respondent Jones Stephens' motion for summary determination of non-infringement and terminating the investigation.

On June 12, 2001, complainant Pasco filed a petition for review of the ID. On June 15, 2001, respondent Jones Stephens and the Commission's investigative attorney filed responses in opposition to the petition for review.

This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and § 210.42 of rules of practice and procedure, 19 CFR § 210.42.
