The complaint named as the sole proposed respondent Baby Trend, Inc. of Ontario, California (“Baby Trend”), and alleged a violation of section 337 in the importation, sale for importation, and sale within the United States after importation of certain strollers and playards by reason of the infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,669,225; 7,044,497; 7,188,858; 7,404,569; and 6,510,570.

On January 6, 2012, Graco and Baby Trend jointly moved to terminate the investigation in its entirety on the basis of a settlement agreement. On January 18, 2012, the ALJ granted the motion as an ID. Order No. 11 at 2-3.

No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the ID.

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 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.21, 210.42).
