Nicholas M. O’Donnell wrote an article, "Chabad Library Case and Russian Art Loan Embargo Roil International Waters," published by Bloomberg BNA - The United State Law Week. In the context of a stolen-art case, Mr. O'Donnell analyzes what it takes to compel a defiant foreign sovereign defendant to comply with a U.S. court order. Noting that a plaintiff in these cases can’t expect too much help from the U.S. government and its diplomatic channels, he says that the order may be nothing more than an "academic point."
