US to Let Americans Sue Companies Doing Business in Cuba

The Trump administration will soon allow U.S. citizens to sue foreign companies doing business in Cuba.

Essentially, the State Department plans to enforce a provision of a 1996 act that lets Americans who had property seized after Cuba's 1959 revolution file suit against companies that operate out of those properties.

A senior administration official says that decision will be formally announced Wednesday.

National security adviser John Bolton is expected to talk more about it during a speech in Miami marking the 58th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Every U.S. president since the act's inception has suspended the provision to avoid a bevy of lawsuits and diplomatic issues, particularly with the EU, since many European countries have business ties in Cuba.

Last week,  the EU threatened to sue the U.S.  at the World Trade Organization if it proceeded with the move.

The move could be an effort by the U.S. to force Cuba to back off its support of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Treasury Department announced it was  sanctioning two companies  that transport Venezuelan crude oil to Cuba.

Around the same time, the Trump administration  revoked a deal  to allow Cuban baseball players to freely come and play in the major leagues in the U.S.
