Summary
Japanese courts have been dealing with post-WWII compensation cases from foreigners since approximately 1990. In the cases of POWs, forced laborers, and comfort women, some lower courts have awarded compensation, but most of them have not. There are many legal obstacles for plaintiffs in such cases. In 2007, the Supreme Court decided the fate of most of these cases. This article provides background, including an introduction to the post-WWII peace treaty scheme, legal theories, and cases
