A personal injury attorney and legal expert Paul Samakow discusses possible ways a lawsuit could play out with The Hill (video above). In that interview they discuss how family members of 9/11 victims can sue Saudi Arabia now that Congress has overridden President Obama’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.
In that article Samakow writes that:
Unless a law is passed by Congress as an exception to an existing law, victims and families of 9/11 victims are not going to be able to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts for its yet-to-be-proven role in the attacks. Even if the law passes, the years-awaited lawsuits still may not go anywhere.
The history behind United States citizens suing foreign governments is complicated.
