SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 17, 2010, the Commission instituted an investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based on a complaint filed by Cross Match Technologies, Inc. of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (“Cross Match”) alleging a violation of section 337 in the importation, sale for importation, and sale within the United States after importation of certain biometric scanning devices, components thereof, associated software, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,900,993; 6,483,932; 7,203,344 (“the ‘344 patent”); and 7,277,562 (“the ‘562 patent”). 75 FR. 34482 (Jun. 17, 2010). Complainant Cross Match Technologies, Inc. of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (“Cross Match”) named Suprema, Inc. of Gyeonggi-Do, Korea and Mentalix, Inc. of Plano, Texas as respondents.

On September 27, 2010, complainant Cross Match moved to amend the complaint to add allegations of infringement by respondents of claims 5, 6, 12, and 30 of the ‘562 patent and claims 7, 15, 19, and 45 of the ‘344 patent.

On October 14, 2010, the ALJ issued Order No. 12 granting complainant's motion. No party petitioned for review of the subject ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. The Commission has similarly amended the notice of investigation.
