The Mexican Supreme Court released a draft ruling to overturn a 2017 lower court decision to prevent Mexico’s federal government from implementing regulations to all imports of fresh U.S. potatoes. “In the Mexican Supreme Court, they issue a draft ruling in advance. That draft ruling was written by one justice and that justice, based on our legal team’s analysis, ruled in favor of the U.S.,” said Kam Quarles, CEO, National Potato Council. “If a majority of the justices agree, this will enter into law and create a precedence that will hopefully end the legal blockade preventing U.S. potatoes from entering the country.” The case is scheduled to be decided February 24.
