SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted Investigation No. 
337-TA-1042 on March 10, 2017, based on a complaint filed by Paice LLC 
and Abell Foundation, Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland. See 82 FR 13363-64 
(Mar. 10, 2017). The complaint, as supplemented, alleges violations of 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), 
based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for 
importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of 
certain hybrid electric vehicles and components thereof by reason of 
infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,104,347; U.S. 
Patent No. 7,237,634; U.S. Patent No. 7,455,134; U.S. Patent No. 
7,559,388; and U.S. Patent No. 8,214,097. See id. The notice of 
investigation named Ford Motor Company of Dearborn, Michigan as a 
respondent in this investigation. See id. The Office of Unfair Import 
Investigations is not a party to this investigation. See id.
    On April 3, 2018, the parties filed a joint motion to terminate the 
investigation based on settlement and patent license agreements (``the 
Agreements''). On April 9, 2018, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order 
No. 36) granting the parties' joint motion. The ID finds that: ``[t]he 
[joint] motion complies with the Commission Rules.'' See ID at 1. In 
particular, the ID notes that ``[p]ursuant to Commission Rule 
210.21(b)(1)[, 19 CFR 210.21(b)(1)], the movants state: `There are no 
other agreements, written or oral, express or implied, between [the 
parties] concerning the subject matter of this Investigation.' '' See 
ID at 1-2. Furthermore, the ID ``does not find any evidence'' 
indicating that terminating the investigation would be ``contrary'' to 
the public interest. See ID at 2 (citing 19 CFR 210.50(b)(2)).
    No petition for review of the ID was 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).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: April 26, 2018.
Lisa Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
