Summary:

An unofficial deal between the American and German governments, to funnel claims under World War II-era European insurance policies exclusively to an international commission, did not carry as much force as the Department of Justice claimed, in a brief filed with an appellate court considering the claim of a Holocaust survivor's son.

Notes:

The attorney for the Holocaust survivor's son obtained the documents from the Department of Justice via FOIA -- albeit inadvertently.
