In addition to disagreements between countries, disagreements under NAFTA can also arise between corporations headquartered in one country and the government of another country. The case of Canada's Loewen Group is an example. In that case, the Loewen Group had been sued by the O'Keefe family of Mississippi (Liptak 1). The O'Keefe's alleged that Loewen had not lived up to its obligations in a deal involving the purchase of funeral homes. The O'Keefe's sued Loewen for breach of contract and fraud. The Mississippi jury awarded the family $500 million even though an independent tribunal had valued the business under consideration at less than $8 million (Liptak 1).
