ICJ Rules in Favor of Uruguay in Pulp Mill Dispute

by Julian Ku

I haven’t really looked at it, but here is the ICJ’s judgment in the Argentina-Uruguay Pulp Mill Dispute. Although the Court found that Uruguay violated certain procedural obligations, it essentially ruled in favor of Uruguay on all substantive obligations (or it simply ruled that certain issues, like pollution effects, were outside its jurisdiction).  On the substantive obligations, there were three dissents, including one by Judge Simma (but not available yet, it seems).  The other materials on the case can be found here. Comments or thoughts on the case are welcome.
