Brief Description of Case Type: 
[2] Confidential business info: Unlike other agency processes for appealing confidential info designation decisions (which usually involve the Secretary of the ITC), such cases in the § 1337 scheme, when investigations have already begun, involve more ALJ discretion and do not involve the Secretary. See 19 C.F.R. § 210.5(e)(1). The ALJ decides whether info designated 'confidential' by a supplier is entitled to confidential treatment. The supplier of the info, or the person seeking the info, may, with ALJ permission, request an appeal to the Commission of the ALJ's unfavorable ruling on this issue, under § 210.24(b)(2).
