A U.S. Federal Judge just ordered the North Korean regime to pay the Wambier family $500 million for the wrongful death of their son Otto.  He was held captive for more than 17 months and tortured before finally being released.  He died shortly thereafter.  Applying the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, the Judge held the regime responsible.  While it is unlikely they family may never see a dime, it certainly was a moral win that the family was seeking.

I appear on I24 International News to discuss the ramifications of the ruling and how U.S. citizens sometimes uses this law to hold countries responsible for their bad acts.
