Supreme Court Rules Against Human Rights Cases in U.S.

Video duration: 6:28

The Supreme Court ruled against trying foreign human rights cases in U.S. courts. The justices decided that a 1789 tort statute enacted by the first Congress didn't apply to conduct outside of the U.S. Gwen Ifill talks to National Law Journal's Marcia Coyle about why the court's ruling is a huge blow for human rights activists.
