Foreign Affairs Article Reviews Cholera Outbreak, Reaction In Haiti

Foreign Affairs: Haiti Strikes Back
“…In October 2013, on behalf of the thousands of cholera victims, [Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) and the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH)] filed a class action lawsuit against the U.N. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Their complaint asks the court to order the U.N. to provide the water and sanitation infrastructure necessary to stop cholera, compensate the victims, and issue an apology to the Haitian people. The U.S. government responded to the suit on behalf of the U.N., arguing that the complaint should be dismissed.
