SUMMARY: On December 10, 2009, the United States Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) sustained the Department of Commerce’s (‘‘the Department’s’’) redetermination on remand of the final results of the antidumping duty investigation on certain lined paper products from India. See Association of American School Paper Suppliers v. United States, Court No. 06–00395, Slip Op. 09–136 (CIT December 10, 2009) (‘‘AASPS, Slip.

PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68779 Background On August 8, 2006, the Department published the final determination of sales at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’) in the antidumping duty investigation of certain lined paper products (‘‘CLPP’’) from India for the period of investigation, July 1, 2004, through June 30, 2005 (‘‘POI’’). See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, and Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances: Certain Lined Paper Products from India, 71 FR 45012 (August 8, 2006) (‘‘CLPP Final Determination’’). The Association of American School Paper Suppliers2 (‘‘AASPS’’) and Kejriwal Paper Limited (‘‘Kejriwal’’) filed lawsuits challenging the CLPP Final Determination. In its November 17, 2008 opinion,3 the CIT partially remanded the CLPP Final Determination. Specifically, the CIT ordered the Department to further explain 1) how the general and administrative (‘‘G&A’’) expense ratio reasonably identifies and fairly allocates G&A expenses in light of the evidence on the record; and 2) how its G&A expense ratio is consistent with its treatment of Kejriwal’s financial expense ratio. In accordance with the CIT’s remand order in AASPS, Slip Op. 08–122, the Department filed its redetermination on remand of the CLPP Final Determination (‘‘Remand Final Determination’’) on March 16, 2009. In its redetermination, the Department provided further explanation on its calculation methodology, and also determined that certain additional expenses should be attributed directly to Kejriwal’s newsprint operations. Decision Not in Harmony On December 10, 2009, the CIT sustained the Department’s redetermination on remand of the final results of the antidumping duty investigation on CLPP from India. By sustaining the remand results, the CIT affirmed all of the issues in which the Department was challenged, including the Department’s explanation of how the G&A expense ratio it calculated 1) reasonably identifies and fairly allocates G&A expenses in light of the evidence on the record, and 2) is consistent with the Department’s treatment of Kejriwal’s financial expense ratio. Pursuant to the Department’s redetermination, Kejriwal’s G&A 2 The Association consists of MeadWestvaco Corporation, Norcom, Inc., and Top Flight, Inc. 3 See Association of American School Paper Suppliers v.
