Court Overturns $156 Million Judgement. Judge: Evidence Must Tie Terrorism To Attack

Federal anti-terrorism laws allow US citizens to sue for civil damages. In the first of its kind, a federal appeals court tossed out a multi-million dollar judgement that had been awarded to the family of an American teenager killed in a 1996 terrorist attack in the West Bank. The judge’s decision took into account errors in the case and the failure of the lawyers for the Boim family to present credible evidence that Hamas was responsible for the attack.
