This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On August 29, 2006, the Commission instituted this investigation, based on a complaint filed by Caterpillar Inc. (“Caterpillar”) of Peoria, Illinois. The complaint alleges 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 hydraulic excavators and components thereof by reason of infringement of U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,140,606, U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,421,077, U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,140,605, and U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,448,848. The complaint further alleges that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. The complainants requested that the Commission issue a general exclusion order and cease and desist orders. The complaint named twenty (20) firms as respondents. Two respondents have been found in default.
On January 26, 2007, joint motions between Caterpillar and Respondents Deanco Auction Co. Of Mississippi Inc., Petrowsky Auctioneers, Inc., Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, Inc., and Ritchie Brothers Auctioneers (America), Inc. (collectively, the “Auctioneer Respondents”) and between Caterpillar and Respondents Musselman Construction Co., d/b/a Musselman Rentals and Sales, Tractorland Equipment Co., Inc., and Pacific Rim Machinery, Inc. (collectively, the “Non-Auctioneer Respondents”) were filed seeking termination of this investigation based upon settlement agreements.
On February 21, 2007, the ALJ issued the subject IDs (Order Nos. 18 & 19) terminating the investigation as to the Auctioneer Respondents and Non-Auctioneer Respondents on the basis of settlement agreements. The ALJ found no indication that termination of the investigation as to these respondents on the basis of the settlement agreements would adversely affect the public interest, and that the procedural requirements for terminating the investigation had been met. No petitions for review were filed.
The Commission has determined not to review the IDs.
The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).Start Signature
