The Supreme Court on Tuesday extended protection for foreign companies from lawsuits in the United States over conduct that took place in other countries.

The justices threw out a case from California that sought damages from Germany-based Daimler AG for its alleged complicity in atrocities committed in Argentina’s “dirty war” against leftists from 1976 to 1983.

Good.  It's about time people stopped trying to bring completely foreign disputes - disputes that have nothing to do with the US - into this country and clogging up US courts.
