BRAL Corp. v. United States
21-80
by: Choe-Groves

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries




The CIT partially dismissed for lack of jurisdiction BRAL’s challenge to the denial of its protests concerning twelve entries of plywood imported from China. Of those twelve entries, certain entries were originally deemed liquidated by operation of law, but were reliquidated by CBP in December 2019. Plaintiff protested the reliquidation and that protest was denied on March 7, 2020. Notwithstanding the protest denial, Customs reliquidated the entry at issue on March 13, 2020, and BRAL did not protest the March 13th reliquidation of that entry. Accordingly, the CIT found lack of (a) jurisdiction and dismissed BRAL’s claims as pertained to that entry.
