ALJ Bullock Grants Motion To Terminate Investigation In Certain Sintered Rare Earth Magnets (337-TA-855)
On November 16, 2012, Chief ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued Order No. 28 in Certain Sintered Rare Earth Magnets, Methods of Making Same, and Products Containing Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-855).
According to the Order, ALJ Bullock granted a joint motion filed by Complainants Hitachi Metals, Ltd. and Hitachi Metals North Carolina, Ltd. and Respondent Electro-Optics Technology, Inc. (“Electro-Optics”) to terminate the investigation as to Electro-Optics based on a consent order stipulation, proposed consent order, and a settlement agreement. ALJ Bullock determined that the consent order stipulation complied with Commission Rule 210.21(c)(3), and that there is no evidence of record that terminating the investigation as to Electro-Optics would be contrary to the public interest.
The investigation remains pending against other Respondents.
