Small Claims Procedure Pilot Project at U.S. Court of International Trade
The U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) has announced a pilot project to test the feasibility of a small claims procedure at the CIT. The project focuses on expediting discovery when all parties to a case agree that it is appropriate. While there is no specific monetary cap for a small claim, it is expected that the cases will have less than $50,000 in controversy and will have limited impact on future entries that might come before the Court. CITBA members are encouraged to review the materials the CIT has posted and, as appropriate, participate in the pilot project. More information, including a proposed discovery plan, is available here.
