What is Left of the Alien Tort Statute
after Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum? - MP3
Running Time: 01:01:21
On April 17, 2013, the Supreme Court decided Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co., holding that the Alien Tort Statute does not have extraterritorial reach. This halts the recent trend of parties being hauled into United States courts for alleged torts that occurred in another country with no connection to the United States. This teleforum discusses the implications of this landmark decision.
