In a case pending before this Court, Defendant ChicoEco, Inc. (“ChicoBag”) has
requested from the Plaintiff Hilex Poly Company, LLC (“Hilex Poly”) documents relating to the
antidumping petitions filed by Hilex Poly and others before the U.S. International Trade
Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce against importers of polyethylene retail
carrier bags from Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, and Thailand. Specifically,
ChicoBag has requested a transcript of the closed session before the ITC and an unredacted
report prepared by the ITC regarding these petitions. Hilex Poly has indicated that it is unable to
produce such documents because it does not have access to them, but Hilex Poly has informed
the court that it consents to ChicoBag’s attempt to attain these documents from other sources.
This Court finds that the requested documents are discoverable and that they may lead to
relevant evidence in this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
