Europe’s General Court has rejected the US government’s request to intervene in Apple’s challenge against the EU’s order for the company to pay $15 billion in taxes to Ireland, Reuters reports. The court said the US government failed to prove it had a “direct interest” in the case’s outcome, rejecting arguments that the decision would have negative effects on US tax revenues and bilateral trade deals with EU countries. The court also ruled against the Irish IBEC trade organization intervening in support of Ireland and Apple, saying the group failed to prove its members’ interests would be affected by the case’s outcome.
