SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on July 19, 2001, based on a complaint filed by the Chamberlain Group, Inc. of Elmhurst, Illinois (“Chamberlain”) against six respondents, 66 FR 37704 (July 19, 2001). Two respondents and an intervenor were subsequently added to the investigation. The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain garage door operators including components thereof by reason of infringement of claims 1-8 of U.S. Letters Patent Re. 35,364 and claims 5-30 of U.S. Letters Patent Re. 36,703. On February 6, 2002, complainant Chamberlain filed a motion to terminate the investigation as to respondents Lynx Industries, Inc., Napoleon Spring Works, Inc., and Guardian Access Corp. on the basis of withdrawal of the complaint. The Commission investigative attorney supported the joint motion and the three respondents opposed it. On June 5, 2002, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 18) granting the motion.

No petitions for review of the ID were filed. This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.42.
