Coverage on Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA)
Passage of JASTA has brought forth warnings by military/intelligence officials claiming that foreign countries will pass laws to lift sovereign immunity, opening the path for law suits against U.S. service members and companies engaged in military actions abroad. JASTA went through a 7-year process of refinements and is narrowly written to amend the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) of 1976 which defines sovereign immunity and guidelines in which a foreign country can be sued in U.S. courts. JASTA specifically allows for suing a foreign country connected with an act of terrorism on U.S. soil. This is distinct from rules of war.
This list of articles focuses on articles critical of JASTA.
