Shelter Forest International Acquisition, Inc. et al v. United States
by: Restani

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries

The CIT sustained Commerce’s remand results in the antidumping and countervailing duty anticircumvention inquiry of hardwood plywood from China. The CIT found that Commerce’s determination that Shelter Forest’s majority urea-formaldehyde glue met the criteria of the inquiry merchandise and that the inquiry merchandise was not later-developed merchandise per 19 U.S.C. § 1677j(d) was supported by substantial evidence. The court also sustained Commerce’s determination that Shelter Forest’s product was commercially available within the meaning of 19 U.S.C. § 1677j(d) prior to the issuance of AD/CVD orders.
