Supreme Court sides with Venezuela over American oil rigs dispute

The US Supreme court has ruled against an American oil drilling company,
Helmerich & Payne, which claimed Venezuela unlawfully seized 11 drilling
rigs in 2010.

A unanimous Supreme Court decision on Monday gave the government of
Venezuela another chance to fend off the lawsuit alleging that Caracas
illegally seized 11 oil drilling rigs from the Oklahoma-based company in
2010, according to AP
<http://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/article147804624.html>.

The justices ruled 8-0 that the lower courts set the bar too low in
allowing the lawsuit, brought by Helmerich & Payne International
Drilling Company, to move forward.

Supreme Court sides with Venezuela over American oil rigs dispute
(snip)

on a technical issue, not the basis:

"Foreign countries are generally immune from lawsuits in the U.S., but a
federal statute makes an exception in certain cases when private
property is seized.

Writing for the court, Justice Stephen Breyer said companies must make a
stronger argument at the outset of a case that property was actually
taken in violation of international law."
