Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co., Ltd. et al v. United States
by: Kelly

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries

The CIT sustained Commerce’s second remand redetermination in the fourth AD administrative review of crystalline photovoltaic cells (whether or not assembled into modules) from China. On remand, Commerce decided to rely on Xenata XS data instead of Maersk data to value Plaintiff’s freight expenses. The court found that Commerce’s conclusion that the Xenata XS data was more representative and comprehensive than the Maersk data was supported by substantial evidence and in accordance with law. For these reasons and because all parties agreed to the remand redetermination, Commerce’s results were sustained.
