Kreindler & Kreindler LLP Obtains Default Judgment Against Scores Of Defendants On Behalf Of 9/11 Victims

On May 12, 2006, in the In re Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001 multidistrict litigation, Judge Richard Conway Casey granted the Ashton plaintiffs' motion for default judgments against over 80 terrorists and their sponsors. Kreindler & Kreindler LLP partner Andrew J. Maloney III and associate Vince Parrett led the effort to get final judgments entered against these Islamist terrorists responsible for the September 11 attacks - including against Osama Bin Laden, Mohammad Omar and Zacarias Moussaoui. Mr. Maloney's supporting affidavit stated that the defaulting defendants "participat[ed] in the conspiracy to commit acts of international terrorism against the United States, its nationals and allies, of which the September 11th Terrorist Attacks were a direct, intended and foreseeable product."

Significantly, not only did Judge Casey enter default judgments against these scores of defendants, but Judge Casey for the first time in this historic litigation ordered that the Ashton plaintiffs "shall be entitled to a hearing before this Court to establish the aggregate value of the Plaintiffs' unliquidated damages." Kreindler & Kreindler LLP is preparing for what will be the first hearing in this case where plaintiffs will finally been given the chance to prove their damages.

Jim Kreindler leads the Kreindler team of attorneys, investigators and other professionals working on the terror case. The team includes Kreindler partners Justin Green, Andrew Maloney, and associates Vince Parrett and Michael Sherwin.
