Partner David A. Hartquist was quoted in The Wall Street Journal article “Electrical Steel Producers Support Commerce Department Findings in Trade Case.” The article discusses how the U.S. Department of Commerce issued its final antidumping determinations concerning imports of grain-oriented silicon steel (GOES) from Germany, Japan, and Poland. Mr. Hartquist explained that “This is a key step forward in this important case. These antidumping margins are locked in, and importers of GOES must continue paying the US government cash deposits equal to the antidumping margins on imports into the US. Final decisions by Commerce with respect to the remaining four countries, China, the Czech Republic, South Korea and Russia, are due in late September. The US International Trade Commission will hold its final hearing in the case on July 24, to determine whether dumped and subsidized imports of GOES have caused injury to US producers.”
Mr. Hartquist and partner John M. Herrmann were noted as representation for the petitioners in these actions.
