The Commission instituted this investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, on March 29, 2013, based on a complaint filed by Neology, Inc. of Poway, California (“Neology”). The complaint, as supplemented, alleges a violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,081,819; 7,671,746; and 6,690,264. 78 FR 19311 (Mar. 29, 2013). The respondents are Federal Signal Corporation of Oakbrook, Illinois; Federal Signal Technologies, LLC of Irvine, California (now known as FS Sub, LLC); Sirit Corp. of Irvine, California (now known as Federal Signal of Texas Corp.); and 3M Company of St. Paul, Minnesota (collectively, “Respondents.”) Id.

On June 17, 2013, complainant Neology and Respondents filed a joint motion to terminate this investigation in its entirety based on a settlement agreement and requested the procedural schedule in this investigation be stayed. On June 18, 2013, the Commission's investigative attorney filed a response supporting the motion.

On June 19, 2013, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 8) granting the motion to terminate (and denying the request to stay the investigation as moot). The ALJ found that termination of this investigation did not impose any undue burdens on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United States economy, the production of like or directly competitive articles in the United States, or United States consumers. No party petitioned for review. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. The investigation has been 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 210.42—210.46 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42-210.46).
