The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (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 prepregs, laminates, and finished circuit boards that infringe certain claims of United States Patent Nos. 6,187,852; 6,322,885; and 6,509,414 (“the `414 patent”). The notice of investigation named seven firms as respondents.

On March 16, 2009, Shengyi filed objections to Isola's motion to withdraw. On March 18, 2009, Isola filed an opposition to the objections. On March 19, 2009, Shengyi filed a reply.
