SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on February 27, 2007, based on a complaint filed by Cooper Lighting, Inc. of Peachtree City, Georgia. 72 FR 8790 (February 27, 2007). The complaint, as supplemented, alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (“section 337”) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain lighting products, components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of claims 23, 26, and 27 of U.S. Patent No. 6,082,878 and claims 1 and 7 of U.S. Patent No. 5,662,413. The complaint further alleged that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection (a)(2) of section 337. The complaint requested that the Commission issue an exclusion order and cease and desist orders. The Commission named two companies as respondents, Cordelia Lighting, Inc. and Jimway, Inc. Both companies are located in Rancho Dominguez, California.

On July 12, 2007, Cooper and the two respondents filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation based upon a settlement agreement. The Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion and no party opposed the motion. On July 25, 2007, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 6) that grants the parties' joint motion and terminates the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. No petitions for review were filed and the Commission has determined not to review the ID. No respondents remain in the investigation and the investigation is therefore terminated in its entirety.

This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and Commission rules 210.21, 210.42, 19 CFR 210.21, 210.42.
