Samantar and the TVPA

In case you haven't noticed (as the fictional Harry Doyle would say "and, judging by the attendance, you haven't!"), I'm going to be guesting for a little while over at Balkinization. My latest post -- wondering out loud whether the Torture Victim Protection Act has a lot more to do with Monday's Supreme Court decision in Samantar than the Court itself seemed to realize, is available here.

Thanks for linking the post. I found your observations interesting. If you've reviewed the briefing in Samantar, did the parties fail to cite Belhas to SCOTUS? Prior to Samantar, was the DC Circuit the only court that considered the (formerly possible) interplay between the FSIA and TVPA with respect to the potential liability of officials of torturing regimes?
