Anti Terrorism / Human Rights
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.
Unfortunately, both at home and abroad, Americans are vulnerable to becoming victims of terrorism or human rights abuses. In protecting and defending our clients’ rights, we call upon a deep understanding of international law along with sensitivity to the intensely personal interests involved.
Several specific laws apply to our work:
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.
This legislation 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. Non-citizens who were victims in other countries may bring their tormentors to justice in U.S. courts.
This legislation creates civil liability for any individual who subjects another to torture or an extrajudicial killing.
Our lawyers are committed to the ideal of respecting human rights and are experienced in representing victims of abuse and terrorism. As Americans, we stand against injustice wherever it occurs, confident that our country upholds the standards of international law and treaties.
