The war against terrorism has a new front: the courtrooms of America. When his friend became the first hostage held in Baghdad during the Persian Gulf War in 1992, James Cooper-Hill became engaged in litigation against three terrorist nations: Iraq, Libya, and Sudan. Of the three judgements against Iraq that have been paid, two of them are cases where the author represented the plaintiff.
In this path-breaking treatise on the subject, Cooper-Hill takes the reader through the history of sovereign immunity in English Speaking countries and then through the many stages involved when trying to thwart sovereign immunity and obtain damages against terrorist nations. Topics covered include pre-statutory U.S. administrative procedure, pre-1976 statutory exemptions, due process requirements, and collateral international terrorism law.
