Apotex Inc. v. United States of America


Apotex Inc., a Canadian pharmaceuticals corporation, alleges that U.S. courts committed errors in interpreting federal law, and that such errors are in violation of NAFTA Article 1102 (national treatment) and Article 1105 (minimum standard of treatment under international law). Apotex also alleges that the challenged U.S. court decisions expropriated Apotex’s investments under NAFTA Article 1110.

On June 14, 2013, the Tribunal issued an Award on Jurisdiction and Admissibility, dismissing all of the claims and ordering Apotex to pay the United States' legal fees and arbitral expenses. The Award and other documents appear on this page.
