What Happened: On Monday, March 4, 2019, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified Congress that the Trump administration is suspending for an additional 30 days legislative authorization for lawsuits related to Cuban-seized property. Beginning on March 19, 2019, however, the Trump administration will allow for the enforcement of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act against Cuban entities or sub-entities identified by the State Department on its List of Restricted Entities and Sub-entities Associated with Cuba (“Cuba Restricted List”).
The Bottom Line: The Trump administration is actively considering allowing lawsuits under Title III of the Helms-Burton Act. It is the first U.S. administration to take the step of not waiving Title III, exposing Cuban entities and sub-entities that “traffic” in “confiscated” property to suit in federal court. Multinationals doing business in Cuba should analyze whether steps are necessary to mitigate potential lawsuits under Title III, as well as analyze the limitations of Title III’s potential application. Claimants seeking to file Title III claims must serve a letter on the target companies to notify them of their intention to sue.
