Yes, we have no bananas: Dole judgment can't be enforced in U.S.

From the L.A. TimesBananas :

Dole Food Inc. can't be forced in the U.S. to pay a $97-million judgment ordered by a Nicaraguan court, a federal judge said.

The award, won four years ago by 150 Nicaraguans who said they suffered injuries from pesticides used at Dole's banana farms in the 1970s, can't be enforced because it was based on a law that violates international legal standards, U.S. District Judge Paul Huck in Miami said in a ruling Tuesday.
