More thoughts on the internationalization of tort

Those interested in my earlier posting on the Alien Tort Claims Act should also check out the recent study by O'Melveny & Myers' John Beisner, prepared for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Legal Reform. Entitled "The Teeming Shore: Plaintiffs Around the Globe Use U.S. Courts to Target Business," the study documents many of the international law suits under the ATCA as well as antitrust and product liability cases brought in U.S. courts by foreign plaintiffs.
