Supreme Court Rejects Human Rights Claim Against Multinational Firm [Argentina/USA]

The U.S. Supreme Court gave multinational companies a stronger shield against lawsuits, throwing out a case against Daimler AG over a company unit’s alleged collaboration in torture and killings in Argentina. The justices unanimously said the parent company didn’t have enough ties to California to give courts there the authority to hear the case…The ruling reversed a federal appeals court decision that had let the case go forward. The ruling adds to a line of Supreme Court decisions that have reduced the options available to people trying to sue multinational corporations in American courts…[Also refers to Goodyear, Mercedes-Benz (part of Daimler)]
