On Loewen

Maybe its just me; but the result in Loewen, a major decision by a distinguished NAFTA Tribunal, is not so remarkable, other than its length. Indeed the facts of the Mississippi trial are scary and outrageous. But as long as a State provides due process which including a meaningful internal system of review in the judiciary, the matter is not an international wrong redressable by treaty and persons not accounted for by the electorate.
