New York, USA: A US court will hear on March 19 a motion filed by the Congress seeking dismissal of a human rights violation lawsuit against it in connection with the 1984 Sikh genocide.
US District Judge Robert Sweet ordered that the court would hear Congress’ motion to dismiss the pending human rights violation lawsuit brought against it by rights group Sikh For Justice (SFJ).
Attorney Ravi Batra, who represents the Congress in the US, had filed the motion in the Manhattan federal court on January 17 seeking an order to dismiss the complaint. Batra had sought the dismissal citing lack of subject-matter jurisdiction.
