As the United States continues its long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, victims of Sept. 11 are in the midst of their own bin Laden pursuit, this one for his family's vast fortune.
Victims and survivors of the 2001 attack and insurance companies say the bin Laden family failed to cut off ties with their infamous relative after learning he was devising terrorism plots.
To this date, the Justice department has not formally indicted and charged Osama bin Laden for the 911 attacks:
The FBI maintains a separate "Most Wanted Terrorists" list, which includes bin Laden and 25 others who have been indicted in U.S. federal courts in connection with terror plots. But this second bin Laden listing also makes no mention of Sept. 11.
Considering that he has never been formally charged or indicted in connection with 9/11, it would be nearly impossible for anyone to recieve any form of compensation.
Lawyers for the Saudi Binladin Group have said in court papers that bin Laden's two per cent shares in the company and another firm, the Mohammad Binladin Co., were sold in June 1993 and put into a trust.
The judge issued his findings on May 21, giving the Saudi Binladin Group one month to produce documents which would show the receipt and subsequent disposition of any dividends, distributions or similar payments arising out of bin Laden's shares of the company between 1993 and 2000.

The only sad aspect of this thread is that there are still some families who think that Osama did it...
Anyway, good luck to them for their inevitable waste of time venture.
