4 As attorney Paul Hoffmann stated in response to a question from Justice Scalia in the first oral argument in Kiobel, “I think that aiding and abetting could be viewed as a conduct regulating norm, that it actually applies to the things that can be done to violate the norm. And, therefore, international law could apply to that.” Kiobel v.
