On July 11, 2016, ALJ Theodore R. Essex issued Order No. 6 in Certain Overflow And Drain Assemblies For Bathtubs and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-993).

By way of background, this investigation is based on an April 4, 2016 complaint filed by WCM Industries, Inc. alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain overflow and drain assemblies for bathtubs and components thereof that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,302,220; 8,321,970; 8,584,272; and 9,200,436.

According to the Order, ALJ Essex granted a joint motion filed by Complainant and Respondent Better Enterprise Co., Ltd. to terminate the investigation based on entry of a consent order.
