Supreme Court to Hear Argument on Suit Against Iraq

Tomorrow the Supreme Court will hear argument in Iraq v. Beaty, a case addressing the U.S. courts' jurisdiction over claims against Iraq for liability claims for actions that took place during Saddam Hussein's reign.  The case has consolidated a number of suits including, for example, claims for wrongs committed against hostages held by the former government.
