Judge Marra Allows Columbian Paramilitary Suit Against Chiquita To Proceed.
A closely-watched case involving application of the Alien Tort Statute and related terrorism claims against Chiquita for their alleged involvement with Colombian paramilitary groups will proceed in part, thanks to a 95-page(!) order from Judge Marra that grants and denies in part Chiquita's motion to dismiss.
I plan to read the whole thing as soon as I finally complete Proust's Remembrance of Things Past (I still have it on my bedside table, I promise!).
