Legal Challenge of Steel Tariffs Fails

The Supreme Court in June declined to take up a case challenging President Trump’s 25 percent tariffs on imported steel products, meaning the tariffs will remain in effect.

The court denied a petition from the American Institute for International Steel (AIIS), a trade association representing steel importers and users of imported steel products.

The AIIS initially filed its lawsuit in the U.S. Court of International Trade, which ruled in favor of the federal government. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit then affirmed the international trade court’s ruling.
Trump in 2018 imposed a tariff of 25 percent on steel imports, as well as a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports under a provision that allows the president to impose tariffs for national security purposes.
