Restricting Foreign Governments Standing to Sue in US Courts & Trump’s Foreign Policy — Two Annoying WSJ Op-Ed’s.

Two really annoying op-ed pieces in the Wall Street Journal discussing separately the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (restricting the right of foreign states access to U.S. Courts). And why President Trump’s foreign policy should be a basis for reelecting him. Don’t agree with either.

…………………………………………………………………………

This Stanford law professor gets it entirely wrong. The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act allows broad litigation against foreign governments. Any abusive litigation can be dismissed by federal courts. He addresses a problem that doesn’t exist.

…………………………………………………………………………

Sorry to ready this by former colleague at George Mason law. Trump’s foreign policy has been a chaotic failure. Krauss is grasping for very, very short straws. Trump is wrecking the int’l rules-based system. As well as our legal & court system.
