Thanks, Stephanie. Jess Bravin at the Wall Street Journal indicates that plaintiffs were not well received. See his article "Court Wary of Torture Cases; Conservative Justices Suggest Foreign Organizations Can't Be Sued in the U.S." at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204520204577251474141139392.html. It quotes Justice Alito as follows: "What business does a case like that have in the courts of the United States?"
