As far as I can tell, this case allows US companies to sue a Chinese state-owned enterprise (SOE) in federal court. Currently, SOEs cannot be sued due to the sovereign immunity doctrine, which states that you cannot sue a foreign government in US court, and state-owned enterprises, under this law, appear to be considered the government. Well, actually it's more complicated than that; the case is explained fairly well here
. The case removes the sovereign immunity of state-owned enterprises to hold Chinese companies accountable.

I'm inclined to think like Andrew does.
