SAUDI ARABIA RESTORED AS DEFENDANT IN SUIT BY 9/11 FAMILIES
Former Florida Sen. Bob Graham, who co-chaired a joint congressional inquiry into the attacks, called the ruling a “very significant breakthrough,” BrowardBulldog.org reported Tuesday.
Saudi Arabia was dismissed from the lawsuit in 2005 on grounds of sovereign immunity, although there are exceptions for acts of terrorism. Saudi officials had called allegations in the suit “categorically false.”
In reinstating Saudi Arabia to the suit, the U.S. Second Circuit of Appeals said its own conflicting rulings had led to an “error of law” by U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels.
The case now goes back to Daniels for more action.
