Court Finds Potential Personal Liability for a Company's Import Violations

15 October 2014
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled in a new en banc decision that individuals employed by importers, or corporations that are not the "importer of record," may be liable under civil penalty laws because of their role in introducing articles into U.S. commerce. This decision represents an important increase in the risk faced by individuals working for importing companies and other firms in the global supply chain.
