WTO Lets EU, Others Hit US with Trade Sanctions

GENEVA − The World Trade Organisation (WTO) on Friday gave the go-ahead to the European Union, Japan and others to hit the United States with some $150 million in trade sanctions in a row over an illegal anti-dumping law, officials said.


The case, one of a number pitting Brussels against Washington, involves the so-called Byrd amendment, which the Geneva body has repeatedly said breaks trade rules by handing out duties raised in anti-dumping cases to U.S. firms.
