Capella Sales and Services Ltd. v. US Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade Committee

(United States Federal Circuit) – Affirming the US Court of International Trade’s dismissal of two separate complaints challenging the countervailing duties on imported goods charged to an importer of aluminum extrusions from China because, regardless of the difference in rates between this importer’s charge and a subsequent litigation into a similar matter, the importer was not a party to the other action, and they had failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted and could not claim the benefit of the rate awarded in separate litigation.
