For decades now, survivors of human rights abuses have been able to use the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) to seek redress from those responsible for their abuse—be they individuals or corporations—whenever their tormenters are found in the United States. But on April 17, 2013, the Supreme Court significantly limited human rights litigation as we know it. In a splintered decision, the Justices held that the ATS does not apply to human rights violations committed in other countries, unless there is a strong connection to the United States. The Justices unanimously agreed that the mere presence of a multinational corporation was not a clear enough connection. However, the Court left open the issue of whether an individual perpetrator who seeks safe haven in the United States may still be liable under the ATS.
