SCOTUS rules shootings across borders are international disputes

Attorney Cristobal Galindo spoke at the U.S. Supreme Court in December 2019 with the parents of Sergio Hernandez, a Mexican 15-year-old who was on the Mexican side of the border when he was shot and killed in 2010 by a Border Patrol agent standing in the U.S. The family is fighting for the right to sue the agent after a Border Patrol investigation claimed the shooting was justified; their hopes were dashed this week when the Supreme Court decided, by a 5-4 vote, that shootings across borders are international disputes, and cannot be the source of Amercian civil court lawsuits.
