Download as PDF 57060 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 191 / Wednesday, October 1, 2008 / Notices of Sunset Review, 71 FR 64927 (November 6, 2006). On January 24, 2007, the Court of International Trade (CIT) issued its decision in Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd. v. United States, 473 F. Supp. 2d 1349, 1364 (Ct. Int’l Trade 2007), and ordered the Department to ‘‘discontinue any action in regard to a reconsideration’’ of the sunset review. In accordance with that decision, the Department discontinued action with respect to its reconsideration of the sunset review. See Large Newspaper Printing Presses and Components Thereof, Whether Assembled or Unassembled, from Japan: Discontinuation of Reconsideration of Sunset Review, 72 FR 9730 (March 5, 2007). On June 17, 2008, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) reversed the CIT’s decision directing the Department to discontinue its sunset review reconsideration. The CAFC held that the issue was not ripe for judicial review and that the CIT erred in finding that the Department’s stated intention to reopen the sunset review proceeding (in the context of the changed circumstances review final results) was final agency action. See Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd. v. United States, 529 F.3d 1352 (Fed. Cir. 2008). Accordingly, the Department is resuming its reconsideration of the sunset review. Prior to the CIT’s discontinuation order issued on January 24, 2007, the final results of this review were due by March 9, 2007, or 45 days from that date. The Department was advised by the Department of Justice on September 22, 2008, that it may resume this review. Accordingly, the Department intends to issue its final results for this review no later than 45 days following its resumption of the review, i.e., by November 6, 2008. Dated: September 25, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.
