In this clip, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kennedy explicitly acknowledge that ruling against “foreign-cubed” jurisdiction, like that in Filartiga and in Kiobel, would explicitly overrule accepted Supreme Court precedent. This type of jurisdiction, in which foreign plaintiffs sue foreign perpetrators of human rights abuses occurring abroad, is necessary to hold defendants accountable. In cases like Kiobel, the country where the harm occurred cannot provide a fair forum for victims, since the government was actively involved in committing human rights abuses.In joining the majority opinion sweeping away this jurisprudence accepting extraterritoriality and “foreign-cubed” jurisdiction, the justices are admittedly rewriting Supreme Court doctrine.
