On January 2, 2013, Chief ALJ Charles E. Bullock issued Order No. 41 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 Allstar Magnetics, LLC (“Allstar Magnetics”) to terminate the investigation as to Allstar Magnetics based on a consent order stipulation, proposed consent order, and a settlement agreement. 

The Investigation remains pending against other Respondents.
