WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is "deeply troubled" by a World Trade Organization ruling in a case brought by China against U.S. methodology in anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases, the top U.S. trade official said on Friday.

"It appears to be a clear case of overreaching by the Appellate Body. We are reviewing the findings closely in order to understand fully their implications," U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said in a statement.
