Partner David A. Hartquist was quoted in the Law360 article “Electrical Steel Producers Take Injury Fight To CIT.” The article discusses how domestic producers of electrical steel used in power transformers have sued the U.S. International Trade Commission for ruling that their business was not injured by competing imports from Germany, Japan and Poland. Mr. Hartquist, who represents these domestic steel companies, said “We believe the case warranted an affirmative determination and that the majority decision contains fundamental errors of fact and law. The Department of Commerce found anti-dumping margins of up to 241 percent which caused lost sales and significant financial injury to the U.S. producers, which in our judgment met the legal standard for an affirmative determination.” The article also notes partner John M. Herrmann and associate Grace W. Kim as representation for the domestic steel producers.
