Cargill v Mexico: The Territorial Scope of Damages under the NAFTA
When the Supreme Court of Canada denied the Government of Mexico's application for leave to appeal in United Mexican States v Cargill Incorporated, it left in place a US$77 million arbitral award made under Chapter 11 of the NAFTA. The most noteworthy aspect of the damages award was that more than half of it, approximately US$41 million, was for damages suffered not by the investment that Cargill Incorporated had made in Mexico, the host country, but for damages Cargill suffered in the United States.
