The Commission instituted this investigation on February 2, 2011, based on a complaint filed by Sony Corporation of Japan. 76 FR 5824-25. 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 mobile telephones and modems by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,311,092; 5,907,604; 6,263,205; 6,507,611; 6,674,464; 7,839,477; and 6,674,732. The complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission's notice of investigation named the following respondents: LG Electronics, Inc. of South Korea; LG Electronics USA, Inc. of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey; and LG Electronics Mobilecomm USA, Inc. of San Diego, California.
On February 28, 2011, the Commission issued notice of its determination not to review the ALJ's ID setting a target date of August 2, 2012, for completion of the investigation.
On August 10, 2011, complainant and respondents jointly moved to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations did not participate in this investigation.
The ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 17) on August 11, 2011, granting the motion for termination. He found that the motion for termination satisfies Commission rule 210.21(b). He further found, pursuant to Commission rule 210.50(b)(2), that termination of this investigation by settlement agreement is in the public interest. No party petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID, and the investigation is terminated.
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 sections 210.21 and 210.42(h) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.21, 210.42(h).Start Signature
