The Commission instituted this investigation on November 28, 2005, based on a complaint filed pursuant to section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, by NTN Corporation of Osaka, Japan (“NTN”). 70 FR 71330 (November 28, 2005). The complaint, as supplemented, alleged violations of section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain axle bearing assemblies, components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of claim 1 of U.S. Patent No. 5,620,263. The complaint further alleged that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. The complainant requested that the Commission issue a limited exclusion order and a cease and desist order. The Commission named ILJIN Bearing of Gyeongju City, Kyungbuk, Korea and ILJIN USA of Novi, Michigan (collectively, “ILJIN”) as respondents in the investigation. 70 FR at 71331. The ALJ set December 28, 2006 as the target date for completion of the investigation. Order No. 3 (December 5, 2005).
