The author concludes that doctrine of sovereign immunity will bar future judgments in favor of alien victims of torture. The author further discusses the policies that allow litigation of torture claims in United States courts and proposes an amendment to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act that would provide one of the few available means of redress for these victims of international human rights violations.
