Law360 (March 11, 2020, 9:13 PM EDT) -- Hungary and its national railway must face a proposed class action filed by Hungarian Jews seeking restitution for property seized during the Holocaust after a D.C. federal judge concluded Wednesday that the suit fell under an exception to federal sovereign immunity law.
Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell concluded that the plaintiffs — 14 Holocaust victims — had proven that Hungary was not immune from the suit since Budapest had used the proceeds of their allegedly expropriated property to engage in commercial activities in the U.S., including issuing more than $13 billion in bonds and buying military equipment from U.S. companies.
