In a decision handed down April 11, 1949, the court unanimously answered question I(a) (Can the United Nations sue for damages done to itself?) affirmatively. Question I(b) (Can the United Nations sue for damages done to its agents?) was also answered in the affirmative, but over the dissent of four judges. On question II, the majority of the court asserted that a conflict between the agent's national state and the United Nations would be avoided because the United Nations would be claiming only for breach of the obligation due to it.
