Consolidated protested the reliquidation. In its protest, Consolidated noted that the entry liquidated by operation of law six months after the assessment rate was published. Since liquidations are generally final as to all parties, this might appear to be enough. Consolidated relied on a 2004 CIT case called International Trading v. United States, 28 CIT 1, 16-18, 306 F. Supp. 2d 1265, 1278-79 (2004), which was affirmed by the Court of Appeals in 2005, as support for its position.
OK, so how does that relate to the EAJA claim?
