This WTO Case Review is the 20th in our annual series on substantive international trade adjudications issued by the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization. Each Review explains and comments on Appellate Body Reports adopted by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) during the preceding calendar year (January 1 through December 1), excluding decisions on compliance with recommendations contained in previously adopted reports.
As this 2019 Case Review attests, there were subsequently adopted Appellate Body Reports. The Appellate Body itself ceased to function as of December 10, 2019. The U.S. led the charge against the Appellate Body. Thus, uncertainty persists as to what, if any, future decisions may exist for us to analyze.
