Neer v. United Mexican States, a three-page decision rendered in 1926, is one of the most cited precedents on denial of justice, fair and equitable treatment, and minimum standard of treatment in international law. Neer has been cited in a number of investor-State cases, including Pope & Talbot v. Canada, LG&E v. Argentina, Thunderbird v. Mexico, Waste Management II v. Mexico, GAMI v. Mexico, Mondev v. United States, ADF v. United States, Glamis Gold v. United States, and Merrill & Ring Forestry v. Canada. The continued vitality and evolution of the Neer standard of treatment has been debated by numerous arbitrators, counsel, and commentators.
