The U.S. Supreme Court will soon decide the long-awaited issue of whether corporations can be liable under the Alien Tort Statute (ATS), enacted by the First Congress more than 225 years ago. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court granted a petition for writ of certiorari in Jesner v. Arab Bank, 197 L. Ed. 2d 646 (2017) on whether a corporation —€ in this case, a leading Jordanian bank —€ can be subject to liability under the ATS for alleged violations of customary international law. The appeal will be fully briefed by this month, and the Supreme Court likely will issue its decision next term.
