This Congressional Research Service (CRS) report discusses Brazil's case against the United States regarding cotton subsidies. "On March 3, 2009, at a meeting of the World Trade Organization's (WTO's) Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) in Geneva, Brazil claimed the right to impose $2.5 billion in retaliatory sanctions against the United States in its long-running case against certain U.S. cotton subsidies. […] This report provides a brief overview of Brazil's case against the U.S. cotton program, the evolution and current status of the case, and the potential role for Congress. For a more detailed discussion of the U.S.-Brazil WTO dispute settlement case, see CRS Report RL32571, 'Brazil's WTO Case Against the U.S. Cotton Program', by Randy Schnepf. This report will be updated as events warrant."
