ABSTRACT
This article reports that the European Court of Justice has dealt a blow to the hopes of international lawyers wanting to launch legal actions by exploiting World Trade Organization (WTO) rulings. It has ruled that WTO decisions and agreements are essentially diplomatic and will have no direct effect on the European Union (EU) law. the court has opposed the relevant advocate-general Antonio Tizziino, who advised that EU law could be declared void when conflicting with WTO treaties and disputes settlement decisions.
