COURT RULES BROTHER IS A U.S. MANUFACTURER: COMMERCE DEPARTMENT MUST CONTINUE INVESTIGATION OF SMITH CORONA

 COURT RULES BROTHER IS A U.S. MANUFACTURER:
 COMMERCE DEPARTMENT MUST CONTINUE INVESTIGATION OF SMITH CORONA
 SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrick T. Gilmore, executive vice president of Brother International Corporation, released the following statement in response to today's Court of International Trade decision that Brother is a U.S. manufacturing company. In reversing the Commerce Department, Judge Jane Restani ordered a continuation of the department's investigation of whether Smith Corona (NYSE: SCO) is dumping Singapore-made typewriters in the United States:
 "Today's decision affirms Brother's standing as a United States manufacturing company. Brother's plant in Bartlett, TN manufactures all the portable electric typewriters, portable automatic typewriters and personal word processors we sell in the U.S. Our 650 manufacturing workers and the 450 additional sals? and distribution workers nationwide will be greatly pleased to learn the court ordered the Commerce Department to continue its investigation of Smith Corona.
 The decision clearly refutes Smith Corona's statements about Brother's operations in the U.S. It should raise a flag of caution to those who support special interest legislation recently introduced in Congress for Mexico-bound Smith Corona. The pending legislation would dramatically change the way in which circumvention of dumping is calculated to include parts from countries not even subject to a dumping order. It will place thousands of U.S. jobs and billions of investment dollars in the U.S. at risk."
 A copy of the Court's order follows:
 JUDGMENT

 It is hereby ordered: that the determination of the International Trade Administration is reversed, and the case is remanded for the International Trade Administration to consider whether Brother has filed the petition on behalf of the domestic industry, and if so, to proceed with the investigation.
