In Re: Linee Aeree Italiane (Alitalia), 06-2935

Petition for writ of mandamus ordering a non-jury trial in a breach of contract case involving Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act issues is denied where a jury trial of an alleged government instrumentality would not give rise to an irreparable harm that would warrant mandamus relief, since the jury trial could be reversed and a non-jury trial ordered on appeal.
