Lawyers Urge High Court To Leave FSIA Scope To Congress
September 10, 2020
Nicholas O'Donnell was quoted and Erika Todd was mentioned in the article, "Lawyers Urge High Court to Leave FSIA Scope to Congress," which was published by Law360 [sub. req.'d].
The article discusses how a group of former U.S. State Department lawyers has urged the Supreme Court to reverse a D.C. Circuit judgment reviving claims over Nazi officers' alleged misappropriation of more than $250 million dollars in medieval art stolen from German Jews. Nick comments that "more puzzling coming from former State Department officials who know better is the deafening silence on more than 75 years of U.S. law, policy and leadership on the restitution of Nazi-looted art, which are precisely why the case belongs in U.S. court."
