On September 10, 2020, a lawsuit was filed to the Court of International Trade (CIT) alleging the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) did not have the authority to "litigate a vast trade war for however long, and by whatever means, they choose." The filers are looking to obtain a refund of any duties paid on imports of List 3 products from China.
This lawsuit, if successful, could result in the refund of all Section 301 tariffs levied on List 3 and List 4A goods from China. However, importers must file their own independent claims to preserve their potential refunds by Friday, Sept. 18.
If you would like more information, or assistance filing your claim, you may contact Priscilla Royster, at email@example.com or (410) 787-3416.
