3,500 companies sue over Trump-imposed Chinese tariffs

About 3,500 U.S. companies, including Tesla, Ford and Home Depot have sued the Trump administration in the last two weeks over the imposition of tariffs on more than $300 billion in Chinese-made goods.

The companies called the tariffs an “unlawful escalation” of an “unbounded and unlimited trade war” with China. The companies also said the government did not comply with administrative procedures.

One suit argues the administration cannot expand tariffs to other Chinese imports “for reasons untethered to the unfair intellectual property policies and practices it originally investigated.”
