Camel racing jockey case dismissed

Judge Altonaga threw out the child camel jockey case against Sheikh Mohammed, the Prime Minister of Dubai, and his brother, Sheikh Hamdam, on personal jurisdiction grounds today. The State Department was about to weigh in on the issues of head of state immunity and perhaps other issues in the motion, like international comity.
