Partial Rescission of the 2008-2009 Administrative Review

    On January 26, 2010, petitioner withdrew its request for review of 
Mitsubishi. Pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will 
rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties

Department, and no other party requested an administrative review of 
this particular respondent. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.

responsibility under 19 CFR Sec. 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under

to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We have been enjoined from liquidating entries of the subject 
merchandise produced and/or exported by Mitsubishi. Therefore, we do

2008, until such time the preliminary injunction issued on March 17, 
2009, is lifted.
