If you or a loved one have been injured or suffer from an illness due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, please contact Andrew Calcagno to discuss what is now available to the victims of this heinous act.

What Is JASTA?

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) is a law passed by the United States Congress that narrows the scope of the legal doctrine of foreign sovereign immunity. In other words, it amends other acts already in place in regards to civil claims against a foreign state for injuries, death, or damages from an act of international terrorism. The initial intention of the legislation was to allow the continuation of a longstanding civil lawsuit brought by families of victims of the September 11 attacks against Saudi Arabia for its government’s alleged role in the attacks, though the law does not mention Saudi Arabia by name.

So, just to clarify, this legislation now gives the families of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the right to sue in the U.S. for any role that the government of Saudi Arabia may have played in the attacks. The families of those killed by the 9/11 terrorist attacks deserve to seek justice against the sponsors of the terrorists in U.S. courts, and now they have been given the legal right and the platform to do so.
