Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether an individual or entity need only provide “material services” to a foreign state sponsor of terrorism in order to qualify as its “agency or instrumentality“ under the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, or whether the individual or entity must satisfy a stricter definition based on majority ownership or control by the foreign state, such as the definition of “agency or instrumentality” set forth in the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.
