An update to yesterday’s discussion.

Nazi-Era Victims Can Sue German Firms
Victims of Nazi-era crimes can sue for additional money from German companies that paid $2.5 billion into a reparation fund for U.S. claims, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the victims could seek interest stemming from a six- to nine-month period when they say payments to the fund were delayed.
The decision reverses a lower-court ruling that said the dispute over interest was a political question, not a matter for the courts, because U.S. and German officials had negotiated the 1999 fund agreement.
