Robert J. Frank, a U.S. citizen, has submitted a notice of arbitration under the UNCITRAL rules against Mexico.
Mr. Frank alleges that, in August 1999, the Mexican Government expropriated beachfront property in Baja, California belonging to him. He claims that Mexico's actions have breached the national treatment obligation under Article 1102; the most-favored-nation treatment obligation under Article 1103; under Article 1105(1), the obligation to provide treatment in accordance with international law; and the Article 1110 prohibition on expropriation without compensation. Mr. Frank seeks damages of at least $1.5 million.
