Sunset Review Victory for Enriched Uranium Producer

ITC Maintains Suspension Agreement
July 19, 2006

Steptoe's International Group achieved an important victory yesterday for USEC Inc., the only US producer of enriched uranium, before the US International Trade Commission.

In a sunset review proceeding, the ITC voted 4-1 to maintain the Uranium from Russia antidumping suspension agreement.

Maintaining this suspension agreement is an important part of USEC's development of new domestic technology for uranium enrichment, and is critical to the continued success of a nuclear non-proliferation program involving converting Russian nuclear warheads into fuel for US power plants.

The Steptoe team, led by Dick Cunningham, included Eric Emerson, Tom Trendl, Alex Baj, and Sohini Chatterjee.
