The memorandum says that is a previous memorandum dated February 25, 1976 it was reported that Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights had won an interim victory in preventing the Department of Commerce from granting the Fouke Company's request to import 70,000 seal skins per year from Namibia and South Africa into the United states (50,000 of which would come from Namibia, and the balance from South Africa). The memorandum says on March 15, 1976 the Director's final decision was published in the Federal Register announcing that he upheld his earlier ruling of the importation of 50,000 Namibian seal skins.
