Biden Administration Settles Suit Brought by Professor Sterio and Other Law Professors

Professor Milena Sterio, along with three other law professors, have settled their lawsuit against the U.S. Government over Executive Order 13928, an order issued by President Trump that authorized economic sanctions and civil and criminal penalties against those who support the International Criminal Court.

In January 2021, the court granted the plaintiffs an injunction against the enforcement of this order, acknowledging that the order was likely unconstitutional. On April 1, 2021, President Biden revoked E.O. 13928. The administration also settled the lawsuit brought by Professor Sterio and her co-plaintiffs, agreeing not to impose any penalties against the plaintiffs for conduct described in their lawsuit.

A press release describing the process and settlement is available here.
