Issue: (1) Whether the courts, perpetuating a four-decade decisional gap over the heart of the Foreign Services Immunities Act, may decline jurisdiction without actually deciding that given by Congress, despite its purpose to provide court access and their unflagging obligation to exercise jurisdiction given, and (2) whether the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, under any construction, confers jurisdiction over a foreign state that directs its contract party and obligations to the United States, and carries on a six-year course of dealing, causing financial loss here, which the dissent below "readily" found created a "genuine nexus." CVSG: 05/24/2016.
