High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In 1994, the WTO
intervened to address member concerns regarding the import of
shrimp and its impact on turtles. This became known as the Shrimp
and Turtle case. The ruling was adopted on November 6, 1998.
However, Malaysia persisted in their complaint and initiated DSU
Article 21.5 proceedings against the U.S. in 2001, but the U.S.
prevailed in those hearings. The most significant feature of this
case is that the WTO upheld the U.S. ban based on the process of
production and not the product itself (known as process versus
product). The Earth Island Institute filed a lawsuit against US
Secretary of State Warren Christopher in federal court. The
government successfully argued that jurisdiction for anything
dealing with embargoes was under the purview of the United States
Court of International Trade. The suit was based on Public Law
609:101-102, which was not an amendment to the Endangered Species
Act although it is often said to be.
