Bork On Judicial Imperialism

Judge Robert Bork in today’s WSJ on judicial imperialism, at home and abroad. The case he discusses, involving efforts by foreign nationals to sue a multinational corporation in U.S. courts under the Alien Tort Act (aka the Alien Tort Claims Act), is very important. It is before an en banc panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Stuart Buck has useful summaries of the briefs here and here.
