  • Dongguan Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 13-119 (CIT September 4, 2013): Following previous remands to Commerce of antidumping duty rates applied for imports of wooden bedroom furniture from China, the court once again remanded the matter to Commerce with instructions to consider “a significant portion of the available evidence” and not to rely on a “small percentage of sales” because such cannot be considered representative of actual rates and does not constitute substantial evidence.
