Partners David A. Hartquist and John M. Herrmann are noted as counsel to U.S. producers of grain-oriented electrical steel (GOES) in the MarketWatch article "Electrical Steel Producers Will Appeal USITC Decision In Trade Case, Says Kelley Drye & Warren LLP." The article explains that the producers will appeal a negative decision on "material injury" by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). Mr. Hartquist details why the petitioners are disappointed by the decision. "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 antidumping margins of up to 159 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. Therefore, the petitioners will appeal the decision to the Court of International Trade."
