Summary
  • Reviews recent developments related to U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit order that a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia and a Saudi Government-run charity it earlier dismissed for lack of jurisdiction be reinstated to give the plaintiffs, victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, another opportunity to demonstrate that an exception to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) permits their suit to go forward
  • Also summarizes S. 1535 and H.R. 3143, both the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, to amend FSIA to allow civil suits to be brought in U.S. courts against foreign governments, foreign officials, and any person who aids, abets, or provides financial or material resources to persons who commit terrorist acts against the U.S
