PLO Judgment Affirmed

Way back in the early days of the blog, I wrote a brief post on a $116 million judgment a Rhode Island district court slapped on the PLO for violating the Anti-Terrorism Act, which authorizes any "national of the United States injured in his or her person, property, or business by reason of an act of international terrorism, or his or her estate, survivors, or heirs" to sue in US courts and collect damages.

Via How Appealing, I find today that the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the judgment over "sovereign immunity" and "political question" protests by the Palestinean Authority.
