The Commission instituted this investigation on January 14, 2016, based on an amended complaint filed by Saxon Glass Technologies, Inc. of Alfred, New York (“Saxon”). 81 FR 1965 (Jan. 14, 2016). The amended complaint alleged 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, or the sale within the United States after importation of certain electronic devices containing strengthened glass and packaging thereof. The alleged violation of section 337 is based upon U.S. Trademark Registration No. 2,639,419, as well as common law trademark infringement and dilution. The notice of investigation named as the respondent Apple Inc. of Cupertino, California (“Apple”). 81 FR 1965. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations was also named as a party.
On July 25, 2016, Saxon moved to terminate the investigation in its entirety based upon withdrawal of the complaint. On July 27, 2016, Apple responded in opposition to the motion. On August 1, 2016, the Commission investigative attorney responded in support of the motion.
On August 10, 2016, the ALJ granted the motion as the subject ID (Order No. 12). The ALJ found that the motion complied with Commission Rules, and that extraordinary circumstances did not exist to prevent granting the motion. Id. at 2-3; see 19 CFR 210.21(a).
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 Part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).
