Upcoming symposium on Kiobel and whether corporations can be sued under the Alien Tort Statute

Long time readers of this blog will remember that I have been following Kiobel v Royal Dutch Petroleum, the case currently pending before the Supreme Court on whether a corporation can be sued under the Alien Tort Statute.  Go here and scroll down for all the posts on this topic and the case.  Today the SCotUS blog has revived the debate on the issue by posting a short summary of the background on the case and an announcement that there will be an on-line symposium on it.  Here is a link to the short article.  The symposium will take place next Monday.  There are 11 contributors announced for the event.  I will keep you informed with links to their contributions...
