Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof from Japan: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Pursuant to Final Court Decision
The United States Court of International Trade (CIT) sustained the remand determination of the Department of Commerce (the Department) in the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings (other than tapered roller bearings) and parts thereof from Japan covering the period May 1, 1999, through April 30, 2000, for ball bearings and the period May 1, 1999, through December 31, 1999, for cylindrical roller bearings and spherical plain bearings. Although certain aspects of the Department's final results were appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), the remand results were not among them. On October 29, 2007, the Supreme Court denied a petition for certiorari in this case. As there is now a final court decision in this case, we are amending the final results of the review in this matter. We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate entries subject to these amended final results.
