This investigation was instituted on September 18, 2008, based on a complaint filed by Freescale Semiconductor, Inc., of Austin, Texas (“Freescale”). 73 FR 54164 (September 18, 2008). The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain integrated circuits or products containing the same that infringe one or more of claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,467,455; 5,776,798; and 6,473,349. The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission's notice of investigation named LSI Corporation of Milpitas, California (“LSI”), as the sole respondent.
On October 27, 2008, Freescale and LSI jointly moved to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. On November 6, 2008, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the motion.
On November 10, 2008, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting the joint motion to terminate the investigation based on the settlement agreement. The ALJ found that the motion complied with the requirements of Commission Rule 210.21 (19 CFR 210.21). The ALJ also concluded that, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.50(b)(2) (19 CFR 210.50(b)(2)), there is no evidence that termination of this investigation will prejudice the public interest. No petitions for review of this ID were filed.
The Commission has determined not to review the ID.
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
