Detentions, Exclusions & Protests

This post is really just an elaborate link to this article on my law firm's web site. The article talks about what I call the magic space of time in which you can challenge Customs and Border Protection's exclusion of merchandise in the Court of International Trade. This gap is the time between the merchandise being "detained" and Customs actually seizing it. In the space, the merchandise is technically "excluded" and the exclusion is protestable.

Go read the article.

Note to self: a Bing search for images of "Customs Seizures" terns up lots of NSFW content. I am reminded that  Customs and Border Protection also has jurisdiction over obscene material entering the country.
