Acts of Terrorism

Acts of Terrorism in 2011

United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): Section 1083(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (“NDAA”), Pub. L. No. 110-181, 122 Stat. 343, repealed 28 U.S.C. § 1605(a)(7), and § 1083(a) of the NDAA replaced it with a new exception to immunity under the FSIA relating to support of terrorism, codified at 28 U.S.C. § 1605A. Section 1083(c) of that statute contained transition rules for applying the new terrorism exception to cases pending at the time of the NDAA's enactment. For background on the legislation and related developments, see this world legal encyclopedia in relation with the year 2008 at 457–63. During 2011, as the examples below discuss, litigation in U.S. federal courts continued to raise issues concerning the interpretation of the terrorism exception.
