In Creating a Corporate Carve-Out, Kiobel Ignores History

Posted by Cara Solomon

For those of you following Kiobel news, Tyler and Susan have submitted their closing statement in PENNumbra’s online debate, arguing that the Second Circuit’s ruling ignores history in creating a corporate carve-out.  The U.S. Supreme Court is due to hear the Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. case early next year, deciding for itself whether corporations can be held liable for violations of international law.

More on our previous work on Kiobel is available here and on the Alien Tort Statute here.  Also, here’s a sampling from the flood of recent media coverage: from Reuters, Businessweek, and The Atlantic.  On the blog front, check out pieces on the Opinio Juris blog and The Huffington Post.
