On December 11, 2012, ALJ Thomas B. Pender issued Order No. 8 granting Complainant Emerson Electric Co.’s (“Emerson”) motion for termination of the investigation as to each of the Respondents based upon withdrawal of the remaining allegations of the second amended complaint in Certain Food Waste Disposers and Components and Packaging Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-838).

According to the Order, neither the Respondents nor the Commission Investigative Staff opposed Emerson’s motion.  Finding that the motion complied with the requirements of Commission Rule 210.21(a)(1), ALJ Pender granted the motion, thus terminating the investigation in its entirety.
