Mayer Brown Legal Update
On March 31, 2011, a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement panel published its report on United States—Measures Affecting Trade in Civil Aircraft (DS353). In this dispute the European Union challenged various US federal, state and local subsidies on the grounds that they were WTO inconsistent and benefited the aircraft manufacturer Boeing. One day after the report was published, the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) was notified that the EU planned to lodge an appeal.
