Issue: (1) Whether the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act overrides the Court's holding in First National City Bank v. Banco para el Comercio Exterior de Cuba and applicable treaty provisions by authorizing creditors of a foreign sovereign to execute against assets of the sovereign's juridically distinct instrumentalities; and (2) whether Congress violated Plaut v. Spendthrift Farm, Inc. by retroactively revising the parties bound by a judgment that was already final when the statute was enacted.
