· Aug-28-2013 · ()

John Bellinger, a top national security lawyer, referred to an an article he wrote for VJTL in a blog post last summer.  Both the recent post and the article discuss the Samantar case, in which petitioners have sued a former Somali leader in the U.S. for human rights violations that occurred in Somalia. In the post, Bellinger discusses why he thinks opening U.S. courts to such claims is a bad idea.  The Supreme Court currently is considering whether to grant cert, and Bellinger argues that the solicitor general should argue for the Court to take the case to reverse the Fourth Circuit’s decision.
