What if a state/entity has insufficient funds to settle a claim?
Is there a statute of limitations for settling claims? What if damages do not become apparent for decades?
Can a state claim sovereign immunity from paying claims?
How to determine what type of “claims commission” to agree to? Is there a role for the International Court of Justice? Should a special court be created like is the case with the Maritime Tribunal established for the Deep Seabed Authority in the 1982 Law of the Sea Treaty? Utilize the Permanent Court of Arbitration (see their “PSA Optional Rules for Arbitration of Disputes Relating to Outer Space Activities” space rules (Links to an external site.))
