Kiobel and the Alien Tort Statute

The Supreme Court of the United States heard oral argument this week in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co., which concerns corporate liability under the Alien Tort Statute.  Today, the Court posted the audio from the argument.  More generally on the case can be found at SCOTUSblog.

The Wall Street Journal has also addressed the Kiobel case in two editorials dubbed Alien Tort Invasion and Alien Tort Invasion-II.


UPDATE -- The Economist reports on the Kiobel oral argument in Law's Long Arm: A Review of Extreme Extraterritoriality.
