On January 13, 2014, ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued the public version of Order No. 21 (dated December 13, 2013) in Certain Windshield Wiper Devices and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-881).

According to the Order, Complainants Federal-Mogul Corporation and Federal-Mogul SA (collectively, “Federal-Mogul”) filed a motion for summary determination that the importation requirement of Section 337 is satisfied with respect to Respondents Trico Products Corporation and Trico Componentes SA de CV (collectively, “Trico”). Trico filed a response stating that it agreed that it imported the products listed in the original complaint, but maintained that it does not import infringing products under Section 337.

ALJ Bullock found that the undisputed facts show that the importation requirement of 19 U.S.C. § 1337 has been satisfied. Based on Trico’s admission, ALJ Bullock found that there was no genuine issue of material fact. Accordingly, ALJ Bullock granted Federal-Mogul’s motion.
