The Alien Tort Statute and the Limits of Individual Accountability in International Law. Stanford Journal of International Law read online review & book description:

ABSTRACT Under the original understanding of the AT S, as well as the modern construction set forth by the Supreme Court in Sosa v. Alvarez-Machain, ATS claims can be properly based only on the small number of norms for which international law recognizes personal accountability. Thus, when confronted with a putative ATS claim, courts should analyze whether the international norm on which the claim is based recognizes a potential for personal liability, rather than exclusive state liability.
