On November 26, 2003, the Commission instituted an investigation into alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation and sale of certain purple protective gloves by reason of infringement of U.S. Registered Trademark Nos. 2,596,539, 2,533,260, and 2,593,382.

On April 28, 2004, complainants Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Safeskin Corporation (collectively “K-C/Safeskin”) and respondents Medtexx and Latexx jointly moved to terminate the investigation as to Medtexx and Latexx based on a confidential settlement agreement. K-C/Safeskin supplemented the joint motion on April 30, 2004. On May 11, 2004, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the joint motion. No other responses were received.

On May 24, 2004, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 15) granting the joint motion. No party petitioned for review of the ID.
