Alien Tort Statute's expanding power could be clipped by SCOTUS

In 1789, Congress passed a law called the Alien Tort Statute. The law basically said that district courts have jurisdiction over tort litigation brought by non-citizens that involved laws of other nations or treaties involving the U.S. and other nations. The ATS was barely used for about 200 years.
