The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, by reason of misappropriation of trade secrets. Id. As later amended, the investigation named as respondents AT&M International Trading Co., Ltd.

The respondents did not oppose the motion, and on June 11, 2018, the Commission investigative attorney responded in support of the motion. On June 14, 2018, the ALJ granted the motion as the subject ID.
