The Commission instituted this

certain semiconductor devices and products containing same on May 22,

of Japan. 67 FR 3743940. The respondents named in the notice of
investigation are Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., of Seoul, Korea;
Samsung Semiconductor, Inc., of San Jose, California; and Samsung
Electronics America, Inc., of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey (collectively

infringed claims of three U.S. patents held by Toshiba. On October 1,
2002, Toshiba and Samsung entered into a settlement agreement, and on
September 19, 2002, Toshiba and Samsung filed a joint motion to
terminate the investigation on the basis of the settlement agreement.
The Commission investigative attorney supported the joint motion. On
September 30, 2002, the presiding ALJ issued the ID (Order No. 10)
granting the joint motion of Toshiba and Samsung to terminate the
investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. No party filed a

amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's rules of practice and procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
