In Law360: “Setback For ITC's Goal Of Adjudicating Design-Arounds”
David H. Hollander Jr., a partner at Adduci Mastriani & Schaumberg LLP (AMS) and an adjunct faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, published an article through Law360 entitled, “Setback For ITC's Goal Of Adjudicating Design-Arounds”. This article follows the Section 337 case, Certain Road Construction Machines and Components Thereof, that brings up issues of exclusion orders applied against design-arounds and products not within the scope of the International Trade Commission’s investigation.
Hollander states, “…by rejecting the argument that redesigns are presumptively excluded, the CIT has put the onus on CBP to adjudicate at the border, and to defend its infringement determinations at the CIT” (Hollander via Law360, June 15, 2020).
With the additional involvement of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Court of International Trade (CIT), this case exemplifies the importance of having experienced and knowledgeable counsel, specialized in Section 337 investigations from start to finish. Adduci Mastriani & Schaumberg LLP has almost 40 years of experience in Section 337 investigations.
