The Cuban Nationalisations in the United States Courts: The Sabbatino Case and its Progeny

  • Victor Rabinowitz


On 6 August 1960 stevedores at the port of Santa Maria on the southern coast of Cuba commenced loading 14,000 tons of sugar on board the S.S. Hornfels, a steamer bound for Morocco. The sugar had been produced by Compania Azucarera Camaguey de Cuba (referred to in the litigation which followed as CAV), one of Cuba’s largest sugar companies.
