On January 13, 2014, ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued Order No. 27 in Certain Tires and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-894).

According to the Order, Respondents South China Tire and Rubber Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou South China Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd. (collectively, “Respondents”) moved for summary determination of patent misuse by Complainants and an order terminating the Investigation as to Respondents as a consequence of Complainants’ patent misuse.

After reviewing the submitted pleadings and exhibits, ALJ Bullock found that because genuine issues of material fact may remain, there was no good cause to grant the motion in lieu of a trial of all issues on the merits. Accordingly, ALJ Bullock denied Respondents’ motion.
