In patent infringement investigation 337-TA-988 of pumping bras, the International Trade Commission has approved a summary determination of section 337 violation by three respondents found in default. The presiding administrative law judge has recommended the issuance of a general exclusion order against these respondents and a bond of 100 percent.

The ITC is requesting written comments no later than Jan. 4 on (1) the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered, (2) the effects of any such remedy on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those at issue, and U.S. consumers, and (3) the amount of the bond under which infringing articles could continue to enter the U.S. during the 60-day period the president has to review any ITC-ordered remedy.
