Abstract

The United States Supreme Court should have expanded § 1610(g) of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act to allow United States victims of foreign state sponsored terror attacks to file attachments against any kind of property owned by a foreign government. This would have provided victims with a viable opportunity to execute the judgments of United States courts against foreign state defendants. Without an expanded § 1610(g), victims will continue to be trapped without any realistic path to recover the full amount of damages they have sustained.
