At the June 21 conference, shortly before the end of the Term, the Supreme Court granted a cert. petition in Republic of Sudan v. Harrison, which I covered back in 2016. The issue is whether you can comply with the FSIA’s service requirements by sending the summons and complaint by mail to the foreign state’s minister of foreign affairs in care of the embassy in the United States, rather than by mail addressed to the ministry in the foreign capital. I will keep you posted on this interesting case in the next term.
