ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. International Trade 
Commission has determined to review in part an initial determination 
(``ID'') (Order No. 6) issued by the presiding administrative law judge 
(``ALJ'') granting complainant's motion to amend complaint and notice 
of investigation and to partially terminate the investigation. On 
review, the Commission has modified the ID to specify the claims of the 
patents that have been added to the investigation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 
1337, on January 28, 2014, based on a complaint filed by Magna 
Electronics Inc. of Auburn Hills, Michigan (``Magna,'' or Complainant). 
See 79 FR 4490-91 (Jan. 28, 2014). The complaint alleges 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, and the sale within the United States after importation of 
certain vision-based driver assistance system cameras and components 
thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 
8,116,929 and 8,593,521 (``the '521 patent''). The complaint further 
alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The respondent named in 
the Commission's notice of investigation is TRW Automotive U.S., LLC of 
Livonia, Michigan (``TRW,'' or Respondent). A Commission investigative 
attorney (``the IA'') is participating in the investigation.
    On April 10, 2014, Complainant Magna filed a motion to amend the 
complaint and notice of investigation to add U.S. Patent Nos. 8,686,840 
(``the '840 patent'') and 8,692,659 (``the '659 patent''). Magna's 
motion also included a conditional element whereby if the motion to 
amend is granted, then Magna moves to terminate the investigation in 
part as to all claims of the '521 patent. On April 21, 2014, Respondent 
filed a response opposing the motion. On the same day, the IA filed a 
response to Magna's motion stating that she does not oppose the motion.
    On May 27, 2014, the ALJ issued the subject ID finding that good 
cause exists to grant Complainant's motion to amend the complaint and 
notice of investigation to add the '840 and '659 patents to this 
investigation and to terminate the investigation as to the '521 patent. 
On June 4, 2014, Respondent filed a timely petition for review of ALJ 
Order No. 6. On June 11, 2014, Complainant and the IA timely filed 
their respective responses opposing the petition.
    Having examined the record in this investigation, including the 
subject ID, the petition for review, and the responses thereto, the 
Commission has determined to review the ID in part. Specifically, the 
Commission determined to review the first paragraph on page 7 of the 
subject ID and, on review, to modify it by clarifying that the notice 
of investigation is modified by adding claims 30 and 36 of the '840 
patent and claims 3, 37, 80, and 92 of the '659 patent, as well as by 
terminating the investigation as to all claims of the '521 patent. The 
Commission has determined not to review the remainder of 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).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: June 26, 2014.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission
