The Commission instituted this investigation on August 9, 2002, based on a complaint filed by Franklin Electronic Publishers, Inc. of Burlington, New Jersey (“Franklin”), against LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. of Emeryville, California, and Jetta Company Ltd. of Fanling, N.T., Hong Kong. 67 FR 51686 (Aug. 2002). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation and sale of certain electronic educational devices and components thereof by reason of infringement of claims 1-4 of U.S. Patent No. 5,203,705. On November 5, 2002, Franklin filed an unopposed motion for leave to withdraw its complaint and terminate the investigation. On November 12, 2002, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of Franklin's motion.

On November 14, 2002, ALJ issued an ID granting Franklin's motion. No party filed a petition for review of the ALJ's ID.
