Mid Continent Steel & Wire, Inc. v. United States
by: Eaton

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries

The CIT sustained Commerce’s final results in the second antidumping duty administrative review of steel nails from Oman. The court concluded that substantial evidence supported Commerce’s decision to rely on a financial statement from Amatei, a Japanese nail manufacturer, to construct value for profit and indirect selling expenses. Plaintiffs contended that Commerce should have used a financial statement from Astrotech, an Indian nail manufacturer. The court rejected this because Commerce’s selection of the financial statement was reasonable. The court stated it would not reweigh the record evidence and sustained Commerce’s final results.
