SARAH HARRINGTON ARGUES FOR THE RESPONDENTS IN REPUBLIC OF HUNGARY V. SIMON

On December 7, Sarah Harrington argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of the respondents in Republic of Hungary v. Simon. The case concerns whether a district court can effectively extend immunity to a foreign sovereign based on comity-based common-law principles when the FSIA expressly provides that the foreign sovereign “shall not be immune.” Harrington represents the Hungarian nationals who sued the Republic of Hungary to recover the value of property lost during World War II.
