I previously blogged about the the Court of Appeal for Ontario decision in Mexico v. Cargill, Incorporated, 2011 ONCA 622 which held that the standard of review from a NAFTA trade tribunal arbitral decision is correctness.
Today, the Supreme Court of Canada denied the application for leave to appeal filed by the United Mexican States:
“United Mexican States v. Cargill, Incorporated (Ont.) (Civil) (By Leave) (34559)
(The application for leave to appeal is dismissed with costs to the respondent. /
La demande d’autorisation d’appel est rejetée avec dépens en faveur de l’intimée.)
