Feb 16, 2024

To print this article, all you need is to be registered or login on Mondaq.com. Pryor Cashman filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appealsfor the Second Circuit, weighing in on the issue of limitingstanding to sue by foreign beneficiaries of U.S. charities. Partners Shveta Kakar and Daniel Kurtz and Associate AblaBelhachmi filed the brief in support of appellees, Profs. EmeritaEllen Aprill and Miriam Galston, Prof. Jill Manny, and formerLawyers Alliance Executive Director Sean Delany. The brief notes that the amici's interest in thecase, which involves claims by the foreign beneficiary, IsraelAcademy of Sciences and Humanities, against the American Foundationfor Basic Research in Israel, Inc. to hand over donations itcollected in the U.S.: ...comes from concern with theexpansion of New York law to bestow standing on foreignbeneficiaries of a U.S. charity, which would usurp the authority ofthe State Attorney General, increase vexatious litigation, andeviscerate U.S. tax law in this area. The dispute in front of the court is over whether the overseasbeneficiary of U.S. charitable fundraising should have standing tosue. The brief argues: To confer standing allowing theforeign beneficiary to sue because it did not receive or stoppedreceiving support from the U.S. charity, would render thediscretion and control element meaningless and would open thefloodgates — foreign beneficiaries would be able to bringsuit against U.S. charities, which includes thousands of"Friends of" organizations. It would also usurp thestatutory authority of the New York State Attorney General which isvested with the exclusive authority to enforce the rights ofcharitable beneficiaries.
