Re: Usual or Unusual? You're welcome, Alison!

Incidentally, my notes indicate (although this data may be slightly dated) that the USITC gets reversed just more than 1/3 of the time when its decision appealed (meaning, of course, conversely, that just shy of 2/3 of the time, its decision is upheld on appeal).  Note that this statistic is for ALL USITC decisions -- not just cases where a ban was imposed.

Also worth noting: The Harvard Journal of Law and Technology found, a few years ago, that ITC decisions that favored respondents were "significantly more likely to survive" on appeal than did ITC decisions that favored complainants.

I have a wealth of other information and insight on this subject if you're ever interested, Alison.  ;)

Re: Usual or Unusual? @Alison: Actually, there was a ban ordered by the ITC as a result of Apple v. Samsung -- only to be overturned by the Obama Administration.

To my knowledge, such an overturning of such an import ban had only happened once before -- during the Reagan Administration.

As for how common it is, I used to know/have some of those figures... I'll see what I can dig up in my files.

Usual or Unusual? Is this the usual way the government responds? I don't know and that's why I ask. I'm thinking primarily of Apple v. Samsung, which of course did not have the same ban. Anyone know how common an out-and-out ban on importation is?

Re: Updated @Mitch I wonder if they'll be able to switch over to US manufacturing in time and at the right price point...does sound like a bleak picture.
