Lawsuits on Terrorism Get Mixed Reaction at Hearing
Witnesses sparred at a congressional hearing today over the possible
consequences of a bill designed to open up litigation against foreign
officials accused of financing terrorism.

The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), would amend the
Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1974 to allow lawsuits in limited
circumstances. It is in part a response to a 2008 ruling by the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, affirming that Sept. 11 victims could not
sue the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and four of its princes over charitable
contributions that the plaintiffs said went to Al-Qaeda.

"The evidence is very, very forceful about the involvement of Saudi money in
promoting terrorism," Specter said today in chairing a Senate Judiciary
subcommittee hearing on the issue. He said the threat of a lawsuit could
deter those considering financing terrorism.
