Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has instituted investigation 337-TA-896 to determine whether imports of certain thermal support devices for infants, infant incubators, infant warmers and components thereof are violating Section 337 of the 1930 Tariff Act by reason of patent infringement.

Complainant Draeger Medical Systems Inc. requests that after this investigation the ITC issue a limited exclusion order, which would direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to prohibit the entry of infringing products into the U.S., and cease and desist orders, which would require the named respondent to cease actions that violate Section 337, including selling infringing imported articles out of U.S. inventory. The respondent in this investigation is located in Japan.
