SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given that a complaint was filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission on October 13, 2020, under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, on behalf of Skull Shaver, LLC of Moorestown, New Jersey. A supplement was filed on October 29, 2020. The complaint, as supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain electric shavers and components and accessories thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,726,528 (“the '528 patent”) and U.S. Patent No. D672,504 (“the '504 patent”).
