The successor organization to the U.S. Customs Court. The U.S. Customs Courts Act of 1980 clarified and expanded the status, jurisdiction, and powers of the former United States Customs Court and changed the name of the court to the United States Court of International Trade. The new name more accurately describes the court’s expanded jurisdiction and its increased judicial functions relating to international trade disputes. The United States Court of International Trade “creates a comprehensive system for judicial review of civil actions arising out of import transactions and federal statutes affecting international trade.”
