Justices Bar Nigerian Human Rights Case From U.S. Courts

• New York Times
The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that Nigerian plaintiffs who said foreign oil companies had been complicit in violating their human rights may not sue in American courts. The decision limited the sweep of a 1789 law that had been used to address human rights abuses abroad.

The good part is that America, as a nation should get out of adjudicating law in foreign countries. The bad part is that this judgment will embolden further human rights violations by the U.S. military in foreign countries. If America will not uphold just for foreign nations that it violates, get the U.S. military out so that the violations are cut down to a minimum.
