Transnational Public Law Litigation, 100 Yale L.J. 2347 (1991)

As recent examples of this phenomenon, I included international human rights suits brought by aliens against foreign and United States governments and officials under the Alien Tort Statute, as well as actions by foreign governments against individual, American government, and corporate defendants.
