Jesner v Arab Bank. Corporate culpability, the substantive question ignored in Kiobel, makes certiorari.

Thank you, Ludo Veuchelen, for alerting me to Adam Liptak’s reporting¬†on Jesner v Arab Bank, in which certiorari was granted by the United States Supreme Court early April. The case may finally have us hear SCOTUS’ view on the question which led to certiorari in Kiobel but was subsequently ignored by the Court: whether corporations can be culpable for violation of public international law. ‘May’ is probably the keyword in the previous sentence.

Geert.
