… Finally , a Veto Override [#JASTA][#His Lordship] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 29th,2016

.. the House and the Senate the other day passed into law the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act , or JASTA , over POTUS ‘ veto .

.. what this bill does is simple . It slightly lowers the curtain of the doctrine of sovereign immunity to allow victims of 9/11 to be able to act to prove in court against a foreign soverign state , i.e. Saudi Arabia . Normaly , sovrerign immunity would protect the Saudis against this . JASTA lowers that curtain just slightly ..
