The Inside U.S.-China Trade article, "Law Suit Seeks Payment of Bonds on Dumped Farm Imports from China," noted Kelley Drye's representation of five domestic food producers in the class action lawsuit filed in the U.S. Court of International Trade.
The plaintiffs claim that a group of insurance companies issued customs surety bonds that allowed importers to bring in food products from China at below cost, or "dumped" prices. Defendants include U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Department of Commerce, which are accused of failing to enforce four anti-dumping orders that were issued to protect domestic producers from these imports.
