Foreign Seizures

Sabbatino and the Act of State Doctrine

The United States Supreme Court framed a unique legal doctrine on foreign seizure of American-owned property in the case of Banco Nacional de Cuba v. Sabbatino in 1963. This ruling has far-reaching implications for international law, American foreign policy, and the role of the Court in both domestic and international arenas of power. Disagreeing with the Court's decisions, Eugene F. Mooney undertakes to place the Act of State Doctrine in its proper historical, jurisprudential, and political perspective.

Mooney argues forcefully that the dogmatic application of the Act of State Doctrine is indefensible in light of its origin, the history of past application, and the pressing current requirements of our international economy.
