U.S. Supreme Court Limits Enforcement of Terrorism-Related Judgments against Foreign Sovereigns
20 March 2018
View Client Update
The U.S. Supreme Court held that a terrorism-related judgment cannot be enforced against sovereign assets unless the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976 contains a specific exception to immunity to execution for those assets.
The focus of judgment enforcement actions against foreign sovereigns in U.S. courts will continue to be assets used in commercial activity in the United States.
