9/11 Wrongful-Death Suit Receives April Trial Date

A federal judge in Manhattan has set next April 12 as the date for the first trial in the wrongful-death lawsuits stemming from the 9/11 terror attacks. The judge, Alvin K. Hellerstein of Federal District Court, who is also handling respiratory injury claims by ground zero workers, said on Tuesday he wanted to try a wrongful-death case first. “I think in many respects when we think of 9/11,” he said, “we think more of the people in the airplanes than anybody else.” Almost all of the more than 90 lawsuits filed by victims and their survivors have been settled; thousands of other claims were resolved through a special compensation fund. The judge said that he wanted the trial to be finished within a month and that it would involve either two still-pending lawsuits filed on behalf of victims who died on American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane to strike the World Trade Center; or a third unresolved suit, involving a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175, which hit the south tower of the trade center. A lawyer for the plaintiffs in the three cases, Donald A. Migliori, said he would choose by Friday which would go first.

This sounds like the interview on TV, his daughter was on a hijacked plane.
He claims not enough was done by airlines and perhaps the government.

How much can he show was negligent in the war on terror that was cold
before it went hot.

Desmond T. Barry Jr., a lawyer for the defendants, which include the airlines and aviation security companies, said in court that his clients needed more time to prepare for trial. He also said that the three plaintiffs had rejected settlement offers.

I imagine so since mums the word on self incrimination.
This should be a new advanced in stonewalling.

Either way you spin, whether you believe in the official accounts or not, the government should be held responsible and punished for 9/11.

If you believe in the conspiracy, naturally, the government is directly guilty of murder.

If you believe the official story, then the government is guilty of criminal negligence and incompetence on an epic scale. Yet the failed to punish or fire anyone for not fullfiling their duties.

You kind of wonder if that's the reason and that seems to be why
he wants a full story.

All the big headlines on Osama and nothing was done.

No accountability just a pay off.
Perhaps what the whole event was all about.
Same for every conspiracy.

Actually no update on this.
