SCOTUS Oral Argument Transcript in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Shell

Today the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Shell (10-1491) for the second time. The transcript is available here.

Parenthetically, there are some interesting exchanges for folks who are teaching (or taking) 1L civil procedure, on topics such as (1) waiver of defenses by omitting them from pre-answer motions [pp.3-4], (2) federal question jurisdiction under 1331 [pp.17-20]; (3) Erie and general common law [pp.18-19]; and (4) the 2011 personal jurisdiction decisions [p.54].
