U.S. Supreme Court Brief: Saudi Arabia Involved in 9/11 Attacks

leave a comment »

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not immune from liability for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, since there is detailed evidence in the record showing its material support for, and assistance to the hijackers, asserts a legal brief filed with the US Supreme Court on May 21.

The brief was filed in opposition to the appeal filed by the Kingdom, following the ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit last December, reinstating the Kingdom and related Saudi “charities,” as defendants in a multi-million dollar lawsuit brought by 9/11 victims and their families, as well as insurance companies seeking recovery for damages paid.

The Obama Administration has not yet indicated whether it will intervene on behalf of the Saudis, as it did in the lower courts.

In their brief, the plaintiffs mock the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as “a supposed ‘ally’ of the United States,” and they state:

“The Kingdom is alleged to have provided material support and assistance through its officials and agents to al-Qaeda, including assistance that enabled it to develop the network and capabilities that would ultimately carry out the September 11th attacks. It allegedly did so through: (a) individual government agents operating in the United States and Germany in support of the September 11th hijackers; (b) its charities that worked closely with al-Qaeda for years leading up to the attacks, including in certain cases through actions undertaken in the United States….”
