  • Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Comm. v. United States, Slip Op. 13-93 (CIT July 23, 2013): This case concerns the fifth administrative review of an antidumping duty order covering certain frozen warmwater shrimp from China. In prior proceedings, the court remanded certain aspects of a Commerce decision for further consideration. While that remand was pending, Commerce sought permission to reopen the administrative record to consider new evidence suggesting that the antidumping duty assessment rate calculated in this review may have been based on information that was false or incomplete. The court sustained Commerce’s redetermination on remand except with regard to the antidumping duty assessment rate applied to the China-wide entity.

  • Marsan Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. v. United States, Slip Op. 13-90 (CIT July 19, 2013): A Turkish exporter contested Commerce’s final results of an antidumping duty review of certain pasta from Turkey. Commerce rejected the exporter’s claim that it was affiliated with Turkish pasta producers and liquidated the pasta entries at a rate of 51.49% (which is higher than the rate that would have applied if the companies were affiliated). The court denied the exporter’s motion for judgment on the agency record, and sustained Commerce’s Final Results.
