Jesner v. Arab Bank Symposium Recap

Just Security has created a Jesner v. Arab Bank symposium index on its Deep Dives page. Jesner is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court and presents the question of whether corporations can be sued under the Alien Tort Statute.  Our complete symposium is listed below.  Stay tuned for follow-on coverage once the Supreme Court rules, likely this spring.
