Partner Jim Kreindler on 60 Minutes Regarding Efforts to Declassify Information Relevant to the 9/11 Families' Terrorism Lawsuit
In fact, the kingdom has never been willing to address the merits of the families’ claims—it has at every stage hidden behind the defense of sovereign immunity, maintaining that U.S. courts do not have jurisdiction to even consider the families’ evidence that Saudi agencies and employees supported al Qaeda and the hijackers in carrying out the worst terrorist attacks in history on US soil. If the kingdom is as confident as it purports to be about its innocence, there is a simple way to prove it—just withdraw the immunity defense it has been hiding behind for 12 years and answer the charges on the merits.
Partner Jim Kreindler, attorney for the 9/11 families, appeared in the 60 Minutes report “The 28 Pages” on April 10, 2016. The segment highlighted efforts made by former Congress members to sway the White House to declassify 28 pages that could potentially prove Saudi support for the 911/ hijackers.
