Would also be interesting to see if hat list would, or should, have names of certain Congressman and Senators, certain civil rights "leaders" and groups, and judges who were involved with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which may have had a part in creating the financial and housing crises.
Seems to me that the Alien Tort Statute is allowing what in the U.S. Is "forum-shopping"; here, Nigerians are suing a Dutch company, for actions in Nigeria.....in a United States court. We have seen this here where persons in area "A" sue a company(s) or person(s) for actions in area "B", but the court is in friendly (usually to plaintiffs) court in area "C", hundreds of miles away. That trend has seemed to be slowing over the last few years and it might--MIGHT--be time to see the same thing in cases involving the ATS specifically.
