Otterbox Sued Over Import Taxes

OtterBox has been accused in a federal lawsuit in Colorado of failing to pay federal import taxes on its popular China-manufactured cell-phone cases.  The case was filed in 2011 but remained under seal until August 19, 2013.  According to court filings, OtterBox had previously advised the government that it had broken the law by not paying enough customs duties and has moved to dismiss the whistleblower’s lawsuit on the basis of this “prior disclosure.”
