The Court of International Trade ruled in favor GDLSK client Kaptan, a rebar exporter, when it affirmed the U.S. Department of Commerce’s prior decision that duties for Nur, a Turkish shipbuilder, should not apply to scrap metal it sold to Kaptan. The Court found that Nur’s scrap metal was a byproduct, and not primarily dedicated to Kaptan’s rebar production.
