The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to shut down a lawsuit filed by Nigerians against Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) over claims the company was complicit in crimes committed by Nigeria's government is a major victory for corporations that have been sued in the U.S. for their alleged role in foreign atrocities. The ruling could affect other cases, such as those against Rio Tinto (RIO) and XOM over activities in foreign countries.
