Issue: Whether Section 1609 of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976, which provides that the property
of a foreign state and its agencies and instrumentalities
is immune from execution and attachment unless
that property falls within a statutory exception
to immunity, permits discovery in aid of execution only
with respect to specific property identified by the plaintiff as potentially subject to attachment. (Scalia, J., and Kagan, J., recused)
