    China Ninestar Banned from Selling Toner
    in the United State for Good, Loses Landmark Lawsuit.

    In a significant legal setback for Ninestar Corporation, the U.S. Court of International Trade has upheld an import ban on the company’s printer products, denying Ninestar’s request for a preliminary injunction. The court’s decision, which was made public on February 29, 2024, reinforces the United States’ commitment to combatting forced labor practices. (download final ruling for free)

    We Are The Champions: Over Sin | The Way I See Things

    Ninestar Corporation, along with its affiliates, is a Chinese manufacturer and seller of laser printers and related products to U.S. companies and consumers. The U.S. government, citing concerns over forced labor, had previously placed Ninestar on the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Entity List, effectively barring the company’s products from entering the U.S. market.

    The court’s ruling, issued by Judge Gary S. Katzmann, concluded that Ninestar’s motion for a preliminary injunction did not meet the legal standards required for such relief. The judge emphasized that the plaintiffs are not required to exhaust their administrative remedies under the particular facts of this case.

    This decision is a clear indication of the U.S. judiciary’s support for the UFLPA and its broader implications for international trade and human rights. Companies on the UFLPA Entity List are presumed to employ forced labor and face significant restrictions on their ability to export products to the United States.

    The denial of Ninestar’s injunction request marks a pivotal moment in the enforcement of the UFLPA and serves as a warning to other companies that might be complicit in forced labor practices. It underscores the importance of ethical labor practices in global supply chains and the U.S. government’s resolve to prevent the importation of products linked to human rights abuses. Despite the ban on Ninestar and its subsidiaries, they may still be smuggling their products into the US market through some of their large resellers and distributors, such as SCC, Arlington, ACM, LD Products, and even Lexmark. We urge the industry to stay alert and report any suspicious activity to, and to also monitor any new entrants that may be sourcing large amounts of goods from China. We are very thankful for the US government’s efforts to support the US toner recycling and remanufacturing industry by safeguarding US production and consumers from these dangerous counterfeit products. We also commend our customs and enforcement agents who are still working hard to prevent the entry of these illicit goods into the US. We should also remember the plight of the Uyghurs, who are still held and kept captive in China, and recognize that human rights are universal rights for all people.
