Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said he will move forward with a plan to let Americans sue the Chinese government over the coronavirus pandemic by amending a law that protects foreign countries from lawsuits in U.S. courts.

“Now the time has come for us to put on the table new tools to deal with an old problem,” Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said. “I cannot think of a more compelling idea than to allow individual Americans, or groups of Americans, to bring lawsuits against a culprit — the Chinese government — for the damage done to their family, to our economy and to the psyche of our nation.”

Graham said his committee will consider legislation to amend the 1976 Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. GOP Sens. Marsha Blackburn, Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley have offered separate proposals to allow lawsuits against China over the virus.

So, individuals are supposed to take up the slack for the federal government not fulfilling their primary responsibility for National Security?
Hundreds of lawyers, decades in litigation and even if you are awarded, how are you going to collect... THIS IS BS...
The biological attack was against the USA, our response must be as a nation.
