Earlier this term, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, which presents the issue of whether, under the Alien Tort Statute (ATS), a business corporation operating in another country may be sued in a U.S. court for allegedly committing, or helping others to commit, human rights violations overseas. As human rights victims have increasingly turned to the ATS to seek redress for abuses suffered abroad, the outcome in Kiobel could limit or entirely foreclose this meaningful avenue for justice. Join the Human Rights Law Society for an exciting discussion about this historic case featuring Professors Laurence Helfer and Curtis Bradley.
