Holocaust insurance claims. The plaintiffs, relatives of victims of the Holocaust, sought to recover insurance proceeds from policies purchased by the victims. The Second Circuit, agreeing with the District Court, held that the state law claims were preempted by the United States foreign policy, which favors the resolution of such claims by the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims. The Court's decision was based on the Supreme Court case, American Insurance Association v. Garamendi.

The decision in In re Assicurizioni Generali, S.P.A. can be found here.
