The lawsuit, which was filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade in New York on Wednesday, claims that an investigation last year by the International Trade Commission found Canadian products do not significantly hurt U.S. manufacturers nor account for much of the overall imports of solar cells into the U.S. and that the imposition of the tariffs is contrary to the NAFTa agreement. NAFTA.
The legal action contends that the tariffs, which the U.S. administration says were imposed to put American companies and jobs first, will inflict immediate, severe, and irreversible injuries to the companies.
The tariffs have also been challenged by the EU, China, South Korea, and Taiwan at the World Trade Organization.
