GENEVA (Reuters) - The
United States has appealed a ruling by the World Trade
Organization which said it had not withdrawn a tax break
for Boeing Co as required, a U.S. filing published by
the global trade body showed on Monday.

The U.S. appeal contests elements of a WTO compliance ruling on
June 9, which largely cleared the United States of maintaining
unfair support for the firm but said it had failed to withdraw a
tax break in Washington state.
The European Union, the complainant in the case, launched its
own appeal on June 29.
