Trade Court Again Rebukes Gov't For Expanded Steel Tariffs

Law360 (June 10, 2021, 9:14 PM EDT) -- The U.S. Court of International Trade handed a victory to steel fastener importers Thursday, doubling down on its earlier ruling that erased an illegal expansion of national security tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.

A CIT panel ruled in April that the government flouted the deadlines of Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act by widening the steel and aluminum tariffs nearly two years after the initial levies were imposed. The court ruled in favor of nail importer PrimeSource Building Products Inc. in that case, and held Thursday that claims brought by importers of steel fasteners were effectively identical.
