Traffic Sports v. Honduran Soccer Federation (Fenatuth)

Guevara v. Republic of Peru.
Comparing Peruvian President Fujimori’s spymaster and confidant Vladimiro Montesinos to “Rasputin, Darth Vader, Torquemada and Cardinal Richelieu”, the Federal Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit overturned the dismissal of Diaz Reus' lawsuit against the Republic of Peru, flatly rejecting Peru’s defense under the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act (FSIA).
Diaz Reus' client Jose Guevara sued the Republic of Peru for failing to pay a $5 million reward owed him for information he provided law enforcement authorities that led to the capture and arrest of the international fugitive Montesinos. The court concluded that the offer of an award was a “commercial exception” to the FSIA because the Republic of Peru was acting no differently than a private citizen and thus was not protected by immunity offered to foreign sovereigns under the FSIA.
This is a pivotal case in today’s post-9/11 environment, where rewards and bounties are routinely offered by governments for the capture of international fugitives and terrorists, such as Osama Bin Laden.
Judgment was entered in Mr. Guevara's favor for $8.2 million excluding attorneys fees.
