Since last year, litigation associate Nima Taylor, whose mother is Tibetan, has been working on a genocide case against Chinese officials (defendants include Jiang Zemin, the former president of China, and Li Peng, its former prime minister) before the Spanish national court.

...
As a member of a team headed by the Madrid-based Committee to Support Tibet, Taylor has been investigating facts and interviewing witnesses in the United States about alleged atrocities committed by the Chinese government against Tibetans.The case was brought in Spain under the theory of universal jurisdiction, which gives any state a right to prosecute individuals who commission crimes against humanity."Spain has a track record of pursuing [crimes against humanity] cases," explains Taylor.
He adds that in 1998, the country charged Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet with crimes against humanity. (Pinochet was ultimately released on medical grounds and died in 2006 before facing charges.) The Tibetan case has been accepted by a Spanish magistrate and is at the fact-gathering stage.Despite the precedent-setting potential of the case before the Spanish court, and the firm's many China clients, Taylor says Paul Weiss is standing behind him: "As a Tibetan American, these [human rights] issues are important to me, and I've received a lot of support from the firm."
