On November 25, 2014, the Federal Circuit issued a non-precedential order granting the International Trade Commission's (the "Commission") motion to dismiss the appeal as premature in A&J Manufacturing, LLC et al. v. Int'l Trade Comm'n (2014-1742).  This was an appeal by Complainants A&J Manufacturing, LLC and A&J Manufacturing, Inc. (collectively, "A&J") from the Commission's decision affirming-in-part the ALJ's Initial Determination ("ID") of non-infringement of certain products in Certain Multiple Mode Outdoor Grills and Parts Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-895).By way of background, A&J filed a complaint in August 2013 alleging violation of Section 337 by over 20 proposed respondents in the importation and sale of certain multiple mode outdoor grills and parts thereof that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,381,712 ("the '712 patent"), D660,646 and D662,773.  See our August 22, 2013 and September 23, 2013 posts for more details on the complaint and notice of investigation, respectively.
