Anti Terrorism / Human Rights

In the twenty-first century, the world can be a dangerous place. Rogue states sponsor terrorism in their countries and export it around the globe. Human rights are respected or discarded based on political expediency and military might. Perhaps most terrifying of all, terrorists have shown the capability and the willingness to strike in our own country. At home or abroad, you are vulnerable to becoming a victim of terrorism or human rights abuses.

The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act protects foreign states from being sued in U.S. courts. However, the Act provides exceptions to that immunity, including civil liability for acts of state-sponsored terrorism.

First enacted in 1789, the Alien Tort Claims Act provides a vehicle to go after human rights abusers in other countries, and to bring them to justice in U.S. courts where they must answer for their actions. The Torture Victim Protection Act, passed in 1992, creates civil liability for an individual who, acting under color of law of a foreign nation, subjects an individual to torture or an extrajudicial killing. Non-citizens who were victims in other countries may bring their tormentors to justice in U.S. courts under these laws, proving to the world that America stands against injustice wherever it occurs and upholds the standards of international law and treaties.

The protection of human rights requires a deep understanding of international law and the proper application of treaties, covenants and declarations to real-life situations. Whether citizens are detained abroad, or immigrants are detained in this country, national security interests must be balanced by certain basic principals of dignity and respect for human life. A thorough understanding of the complex laws concerned, coupled with a sensitivity to the intensely personal interests involved, are essential to providing effective representation across countries and cultures.

Our lawyers are committed to the ideal of respecting human rights and fighting abuse wherever it occurs. Whether in Indiana or around the globe, victims of terrorism and their families can count on the attorneys at Ramey & Hailey to provide exceptional legal representation.
