Free Press Releases: The United States’ ‘New Japan’ Tournament to be held in 2019
Politico – JAPAN (AP) The United State’s top court will not rule on whether the U.S. should hold the 2019 Summer Olympics in Tokyo or move the games to New Jersey.
The justices ruled Friday in favor of the U:N.
in the case of an athlete who sued the United States over a bid by Japan to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
The court had ordered a new hearing to decide whether to uphold a ruling by a panel of the International Olympic Committee that Tokyo should bid.
It was the first time in U.N. history that a case over a contested bid has been dismissed.
Japan had argued that the IOC’s decision that Tokyo bid was based on an outdated “pre-existing framework,” and that the U.:N.
bid was fair.
The IOC said that Tokyo’s bid was not based on a “previous legal framework” and that its bid “did not exceed the minimum requirements for a fair and transparent bid.”
