Brief of Amici Curiae - Center for Constitutional Rights and International Federation for Human Rights in support of neither party

[Full text of the amici curiae brief by the Center for Constitutional Rights and International Federation for Human Rights arguing that:

1) the Alien Tort Statute ["ATS"] must be interpreted and applied in line with fundamental human rights principles;

2) general principles of law affirm the viability of the ATS to address serious human rights violations by corporations; and

3) because it applies broadly to all corporate actors, the ATS must not be interpreted in a way that preferences national security interests or the remediation of alleged terrorist acts]
