Breaking News: Saudi Arabia’s Motion to Dismiss Denied
We are very pleased to report that Judge Daniels denied Saudi Arabia’s motion to dismiss and ruled that the plaintiffs may conduct limited jurisdictional discovery of the Kingdom.
This is a historic decision and opens the door for us to proceed with our key claims under the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act. Specifically, the Court held that we are entitled to obtain discovery concerning our allegations that senior Saudi government officials directed two Saudi government agents in California to provide assistance to some of the 9/11 hijackers.
In his 41 page opinion, Judge Daniels also dismissed plaintiffs’ claims against the Saudi High Commission and limited certain claims that we made against Saudi Arabia.
Wishing you a very Happy Easter.
