Burkle Center Director Kal Raustiala Comments on Dispute with Spain over World War II Era Art

Kal Raustiala contributes his expertise on the ambiguity of a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on a Holocaust survivor's six-year legal battle to recover a family painting stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

Excerpt from Daily Journal article by Deidre Crawford:

" 'The courts are partly guessing in these situations - they are making predictions or using assumptions, and if they get that wrong, it could be changed by Congress,' said Kal Raustiala, a professor at UCLA School of Law and director of the Ronald W. Burkle Center for International Relations. 'It's an issue of statutory interpretation - Congress could come back and say, 'No, that's not what we meant.' ' "
