Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
15-423 D.C. Cir. Nov 2, 2016
Tr.Aud.
TBD TBD TBD OT 2016

Issue: Whether the pleading standard for alleging that a case falls within the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act’s expropriation exception is more demanding than the standard for pleading jurisdiction under the federal-question statute, which allows a jurisdictional dismissal only if the federal claim is wholly insubstantial and frivolous. CVSG: 05/24/2016.
