There are conflicting reports from EU and U.S. sources concerning the nature of the World Trade Organization's panel decision on approximately $29 billion in subsidies Boeing is alleged to have received. Compare Frank Jordans, Europe Claims WTO Ruling in Boeing Case a Victory, Assoc. Press, Sept. 15, 2010 (available here), with WTO Easier on Boeing Than Claimed: Sources, Reuters, Sept. 15, 2010 (available here). If U.S. sources are to be believed, the WTO may have ruled that Boeing received as little as $3 billion in illegal aid.
