Short article on the issue of corporate liability under the Alien Tort Statute
As I said a couple of days ago, the cases pending before the US Supreme Court on the issue of whether plaintiffs have a right to recover from corporations under the Alien Tort Statute and the Torture Victim Protection Act (Kiobel v Royal Dutch Petroleum are Bowoto v. Chevron) were scheduled to be discussed during today's Supreme Court's conference. I will post any announcement on them as soon as I find out. Meanwhile, here is a link to a short article on the subject from the National Law Journal.
