DescriptionA summary of the contradictory array of legal judgements around 9-11

The legal position as regards 9/11 is complex, self-contradictory and not well reported by commercially-controlled media.

2001 Anthrax attacks

Full article: Rated 4/5 2001 Anthrax attacks

The FBI's investigation into the 2001 Anthrax attacks was led by Richard Lambert, who in 2015 sued the FBI, alleging that they were concealing evidence that could have exonerated Ivins.[1][2]

The FBI accused Steven Hatfill with the attacks. After "a decade of lawsuits" he cleared his name.[3]

In September 2011, an 8 year legal battle concluded when the US federal government agreed to pay $2.5 million to the family of Robert Stevens, the first anthrax victim. This exposed slack rules and sloppy recordkeeping at the Army’s biodefense laboratory at Fort Detrick.[4]

9-11/Compensation fund

97% of victims' family members accepted money from the 9-11/Compensation fund and in so doing agreed not to be involved in legal action about the attacks. Beverly Eckert notably refused and stated that "My silence cannot be bought". She died in February 2009 in a small plane crash. Lawyer Michael H. Doran was working with families who rejected the government's offer when he died in a plane crash on April 28, 2009.

Saudi Arabia

US trial judges twice ruled that Saudi Arabia is immune from prosecution under the federal Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, but in 2013, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York revived a lawsuit in light of a 2011 decision that had allowed similar claims to proceed against Afghanistan.

2015:- "Sovereign immunity"

In September 2015, George Daniels ruled further that Saudi Arabia had "sovereign immunity" from prosecution in regard to 9-11.[5]

2018:-"Narrowly articulate a reasonable basis"

In March 2018, George Daniels ruled that plaintiffs suing Saudi Arabia had “narrowly articulate a reasonable basis” and could proceed.
