Arab Bank v. Linde

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-1485 2d Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: (1) Whether the Second Circuit erred when, in conflict with decisions of this Court and other circuits and in disregard of international comity and due process, it failed to vacate severe sanctions for non-production of records located in countries where production would subject the Bank to criminal penalties, hobbling the Bank’s defense; and (2) whether the courts below erred by failing to dismiss plaintiffs’ Alien Tort Statute claims, as the Second Circuit’s and this Court’s decisions in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum require.
