Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issues: (1) Whether the International Organizations Immunities Act—which affords international organizations the “same immunity” from suit that foreign governments have, 22 U.S.C. § 288a(b)—confers the same immunity on such organizations as foreign governments have under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 1602-11; and (2) whether, and what, rules govern the immunity to which international organizations are entitled if the IOIA does not afford the same immunity.
