U.S. Has No Jurisdiction Over Dubai Ruler

“A judge in Miami on Monday dismissed a lawsuit alleging the ruler of Dubai enslaved thousands of children and forced them to work as camel jockeys, saying the suit fell outside the court’s jurisdiction.” Yahoo News.

As it stands, there will be no punitive measure taken for the enslavement of child camel jockeys. Reparations in the form of financial compensation is viewed as the “exclusive remedy.” The United Arab Emirates recently banned the use of child jockeys and sent more than 1000 child jockeys home. They have been replaced by robot jockeys.
