SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on December 28, 2015, based on a complaint filed by Federal-Mogul 
Motorparts Corporation (Federal-Mogul) of Southfield, MI. 80 FR 80798 
(Dec. 28, 2015). The complaint alleged a violation 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 chassis parts 
incorporating movable sockets and components thereof by reason of 
infringement of one or more of claims 1-5 of U.S. Patent No. 6,202,280 
patent. Id. The Commission's Notice of Investigation named Mevotech, 
L.P. of Toronto, Canada (Mevotech) as a respondent and the Office of 
Unfair Import Investigations (OUII) as a party. Id.
    On March 24, 2016, Federal-Mogul and Mevotech filed a motion to 
terminate this Investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. 
See Order No. 8, at 1 (hereinafter the Subject ID). The private parties 
provided a confidential, unredacted copy of their settlement agreement 
and a proposed redacted, public version. Subject ID at 1-2. On March 
29, 2016, OUII filed a response in support of the motion. Id. at 1. In 
response to the ALJ's request, the private parties thereafter submitted 
a revised public version of their settlement agreement and arguments in 
support of their redactions. Id. On April 26, 2016, the ALJ issued 
Order No. 6, which concluded that the public version of the settlement 
agreement was over-redacted. Id. On May 3, 2016, Mevotech moved for 
reconsideration of Order No. 6. Id. On May 24, 2016, the ALJ issued 
Order No. 7, which granted the motion and concluded that the revised 
public version of the settlement agreement was properly redacted. Order 
No. 7, at 2; see Subject ID at 1.
    Also on May 24, 2016, the ALJ issued the Subject ID, which granted 
the private parties' motion to terminate the investigation on the basis 
of their settlement. Subject ID at 3. The ALJ concluded that the 
private parties complied with Commission Rule 210.21(b)(1), which 
governs termination based on a settlement agreement, and that 
terminating the investigation on the basis of the settlement poses no 
threat to the public interest. Id. at 2-3. No parties petitioned for 
review of the Subject ID.
    The Commission hereby determines to not review the Subject ID. This 
investigation is 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 part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 
part 210).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: June 22, 2016.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
