SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on March 9, 2009, under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based on a complaint filed on February 10, 2009, by Humanscale Corporation of New York, New York. The Commission named the following two companies as respondents: CompX International, Inc., of Dallas, Texas and CompX Waterloo, of Ontario, Canada. The complaint alleged violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain adjustable keyboard support systems and components thereof that infringe certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,292,097. 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 ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 4) on April 20, 2009. The ID corrects the name of a respondent, essentially amending the complaint and notice of investigation. The complaint and notice of investigation named CompX Waterloo as a proposed respondent, but the correct name for the respondent is “Waterloo Furniture Components Ltd.” No petitions for review were filed and the Commission has determined not to review the ID.

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 rule 210.42, 19 CFR 210.42.
