The complaint, as amended, alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. § 1337) by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,771,344; 6,882,375; 7,535,537; 7,787,087; and RE41,363.

SANYO North America was subsequently terminated from the investigation.

On January 9, 2012, the parties filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation based on a settlement agreement. On July 21, 2011, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting the joint motion. No petitions for review were filed.

The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID.
