Los Angeles Principal Lee Crawford Boyd will participate as a panelist at the 96th Annual Meeting of the American Branch of the International Law Association, October 20th, 2017 in New York City. The panel topic centers on the Supreme Court hearing Jesner v. Arab Bank and deciding whether the Alien Tort Statute supports corporate liability for certain violations of international law. If the answer is no, little may remain of the robust ATS litigation of the 1990s and 2000s. The panel will explore the significance of the case to human rights advocates, multinational business entities, victims of terrorism, and the U.S. government. The event is presented by the American Branch of the International Law Association & the International Law Students Association.
