Continuing our series of five-minute podcasts on oral argument days, we have two new podcasts below with the counsel from both sides of the case to be argued today, Samantar v. Yousuf (08-1555). Â At issue in the case is whether a foreign stateâ€™s immunity from suit under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act extends to an individual acting in his official capacity on behalf of a foreign state and, if so, whether an individual who is no longer an official of a foreign state at the time suit is filed retains immunity.
For the petitioner, his counsel:
Paul Lettow of Jones Day
For the respondents, their counsel:
[Disclosure: Akin Gump and Howe & Russell also represent the respondents in this case.]
