OPINION and ORDER

Nicholas Tsoucalas, Senior Judge.

Before the court are two motions to strike filed by defendant-intervenor Appvion, Inc.1 (" Appvion" ). Appvion moves pursuant to USCIT Rule 12(f) to strike certain information in plaintiff Papierfabrik August Koehler SE's (" Koehler" ) reply brief and to strike the Notice of Supplemental Authority Koehler filed on July 2, 2014, arguing that the contested information in both documents was not on the administrative record before defendant United States Department of Commerce (" Commerce" ) during the third administrative review (" AR3" ) of lightweight thermal paper (" LWTP" ) from Germany.2 See Def.-Int.'s Mot. to Strike Information in Pl.'s Reply Br., ECF No. 106 (June 24, 2014) (" First Motion to Strike" ); Def.-Int.'s Mot. to Strike Pl.'s Notice of Supplemental Auth., ECF No. 111 (July 7, 2014) (" Second Motion to Strike" ). Commerce supports Appvion's motions. See Def.'s Consolidated Resp. to Appvion's Mot. to Strike and to Koehler's Notices of Supplemental Auth., ECF No. 114 at 1-2 (July 10, 2014). Koehler opposes both of Appvion's motions to strike. See Resp. to Def.-Int.'s Mot. to Strike Information in Pl.'s Reply Br., ECF No. 108 at 1 (July 2, 2014); Resp. to Def.-Int.'s Mot. to Strike
