Complaint Against Russia and Trump Sycophants

The complaint against the Trump family and his sycophants as well as Russia in Democratic Na­ti­o­nal Committee v. Fede­ra­ti­on of Rus­si­a followed closely the revelation of the Comey memoranda on his disturbing meetings and calls with Trump. It was filed with the United States Court for the Sou­thern District of New York on April 19, 2018 and makes for interesting reading in the areas of computer law and sovereign immunity law. The plaintiff argues that Russia should not benefit from sovereign immunity under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. -- Clemens Kochinke, partner, Berliner Corcoran & Rowe LLP, Washington, DC.
