In addition, Inder is a recognized expert in international human rights law and the war in Iraq. In 2013, Inder led a team of international lawyers in a first-of-its kind lawsuit against high ranking members of the Bush Administration, including former President George W. Bush, for the planning and waging of the Iraq War. The case alleged that the Iraq War was an illegal act of aggression under the judgment set at the Nuremberg Trials. After four years of litigation, the Ninth Circuit stopped the lawsuit in 2017, concluding that whatever the merits of the case, Congress had provided immunity to President Bush and others even for conduct that might constitute an international crime (Saleh v. Bush, et al., 848 F.3d 880 (9th Cir. 2017)).
Inder obtained his J.D. from the New York University School of Law and earned an M.A. in Sociology and Bachelors of Arts degrees in Psychology and International Relations from Stanford University.
Inder’s professional philosophy is that lawyers are modern day warriors, who need to fight not just for their clients, but also for ideals that can make the world a more civilized, dignified and sustainable place for all.
