The Federalist Society – COVID-19 and Suing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Chinese Government?

June 3rd 2020

CLICK PLAY TO LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

The first lawsuit against the Chinese government seeking damages for personal and property injuries was filed in the Southern District of Florida by the Berman Law group. The lawsuit was later amended to add the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as a defendant. Other lawsuits have followed elsewhere in the country. The panelists will discuss whether the CCP enjoys sovereign immunity and whether the acts and omissions of the Chinese government fall within one or more exceptions to sovereign immunity as provided in the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.
