Supreme Court declines to hear appeal of foreign company required to turn over information related to Mueller investigation

The US Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the appeal of an unnamed corporation required to disclose vital information regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. 

The company had argued that it was immune to investigation the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, which restrains prosecution for foreign entities.

A lower court initially fouond that the request for information was oriented under “commercial activities,” and therefore, was subject to request by the judicial system. The Supreme Court’s denial allows that decision to stand.
