In an unjust enrichment action by an independent consultant for Defendant Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC), the District Court's denial of Defendant's motion to dismiss is affirmed where, by waiving immunity from unjust enrichment claims of independent consultants whom the IIC solicits to help negotiate the commercial lending agreements that are central to its function, the IIC gains a corresponding benefit that furthers its objectives.
