On January 7, 2010, Liz Claiborne settled one of its cases at the CIT against the US Government over duties imposed on garments made with lyocell. The lawsuit was one of several in which Liz Claiborne challenged the classification of its women’s pullovers. Liz Claiborne argued that CBP misclassified the pullovers as being made of “man-made fibers,” resulting in a duty rate of 32.7 percent ad valorem, when the pullovers should have been classified as being made of “other textile materials” and, thus, subject to the lower rate of six percent ad valorem. As part of the settlement, Liz Claiborne agreed to accept a refund of US$96,218.68, with interest, in exchange for its termination of all its lyocell lawsuits against the US Government.
