Missouri man sues China over disease

Post by John Q. Public » Tue Apr 21, 2020 1:40 pm

Filed in US Federal Court which doesn't have jurisdiction and China's under no obligation to even acknowledge it. Morons. Every last one of 'em.
(Reuters) - Missouri on Tuesday became the first U.S. state to sue the Chinese government over its handling of the coronavirus, saying that China’s response to the outbreak that originated in Wuhan city led to devastating economic losses in the state.

The civil lawsuit, filed in federal court by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, alleges negligence, among other claims. The complaint alleges Missouri and its residents have suffered possibly tens of billions of dollars in economic damages, and seeks cash compensation.

A legal doctrine called sovereign immunity offers foreign governments broad protection from being sued in U.S. courts, said Tom Ginsburg, a professor of international law at the University of Chicago.

Ginsburg said he thought the recent flurry of lawsuits against China serve a political end for Republican leaders facing an election in November.

Now that I have taken strong, effective action I feel so much better.

BTW, can I interest anybody in 464,000 tons of soybeans?
