High court to look at Daimler appeal
Monday - 4/22/2013, 3:40pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court says it will hear an appeal from automaker Daimler AG that seeks to shut down a U.S. lawsuit over allegations that its unit in Argentina played a role in that country's 'dirty war" in the 1970s.
The justices said Monday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that allowed a lawsuit filed by 22 Argentines in California to proceed. The Argentines claim they were victims of human rights abuses while working for Mercedes-Benz Argentina.
The issue for the Supreme Court is whether the company has sufficient ties to California to allow a lawsuit to be filed there.
The case will be argued in the fall.
The case is DaimlerChrylser AG v. Bauman, 11-965.
