Feds Trying to Block 9/11 Civil Litigation
    #701205 - 06/25/02 06:17 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Makes you wanna say, "hmmmm"...

Federal Government Interfering with 9/11 Civil Litigation
Report By J.J. Johnson
Published 06. 25. 02 at 7:30 Sierra Time


It's the kind of story that would get a news service
thrown into the conspiracy theorist ash heap. It could
also leave many a reader scratching their head. You
may recall that hefty cash settlement offered by the
U.S. government for the surviving families of the
September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
However, there was a catch; to get the money, the
families had to surrender the right to file other
lawsuits. Some of them refused, instead choosing to
sue the airlines.

So why is the federal government threatening to
intervene - even though it's not a party in the case?

In a 'New York Post' exclusive, they report running
across a letter from the U.S. attorney's office asking a
federal judge to temporarily halt the families' lawyers
from seeking any documents in the suits filed in the
Manhattan federal court against United Air Lines and
American Airlines. The reason; the federal government
is arguing that the discovery of documents raises
"grave national security concerns".

Yet, get this - they threaten to 'intervene' in these
cases even though the federal government is not a
party to these civil cases, but you go figure.

The Post quotes: "The letter, written June 20 on
behalf of U.S. Attorney Jim Comey, also reveals that
the government is contacting witnesses who have
been subpoenaed to provide information, asking them
to first hand over any documents to the Transportation
Security Administration to be vetted."

Lawyers for the surviving families are livid, the U.S
Attorney's office is not talking, and don't expect this
story to be discussed on the morning talk shows.

There is clearly something out there this government
doesn't want to have out there.

Stay tuned.

I gota say that I agree with the government stepping in and not letting people sue the airlines.. The airlines most likely had less to do with the attacks than the government and if people win landfall settlements then others are gona follow and soon the airline industry will need a huge bailout by guess who? The Government.

The airports did nothing wrong, the government suposidly has done nothing wrong but they took themselvs by the bit and decided to pay families millions.

Only thing I hate about this is that people believe that since their family member killed in the attacks made more money than say the janitor killed in the attacks they believe they are entitled to more money and they are holding things up in court saying that 1.2 million dollars is just not enough to keep all three vacation houses and the Bentley. All while others are having to sell the only home theyve got and are fileing for bankruptcy while they wait for their share.

I agree with you. This country is in dire need of tort reform (how about a loser pays system?). But what is interesting is the government citing "grave national security concerns."

gabba, the airlines DO HAVE SOMETHInG to do with their own security.

I think you are protecting your union brothers, but you are forgetting that a the airline bosses allocate a certain amount of $ for security ad f they hire some $5/ hour niggers who are not doing their jobs, just because those $5/hour fucks are cheap, than the airlines are liable for letting bombs, hijackers, etc thoug and are liable for any death occuring as a result.....

Go ahead and argue...I can counter ANY argument you have for claiming airlines had no liablility in these hijabkings and deaths.......


a law firm I worked for repped some airlines in a few cases and I can tell you that in every instance, individua;lds beat us in court or got their's in out of court settlements in the 6-7 digits. The law is on the passengers side.

no matter what you say

In reply to:

Why should the government finance the airline industry? I say let them go broke. Their assets would be bought up by other companies and the transportation industry will continue as normal, just with different airline names. Fuck the government giving big companies corporate welfare (bailouts).

I agree but the terrorists did nothing to tip off security, they bought tickets, went through securrity and boarded plains with box cutters. If anyone is to blame it is the government for passing "wussification laws" (see my wussification thread here on the shroomery). These wussification laws have made Americans soft and able to be taken over by a man with a one inch blade. It dont matter how much a person was paid at the time, even someone making a million a year would have let them through because they all had acceptable non threatening tools on them at the time.

>Why should the government finance the airline industry?<

because the airline/travle industry brings in Billions and Billions on top of Billions in tourism tax revenue. It is the same reason why the government is going to bail out Amtrack with 200 million, they just cant afford to lose all that money.

PGF you are way off and way wrong on this whole issue. The airlines have no liability to these people as far as I m concerned. There is no security against mental insanity. Anyone who would fly a plane into a building is insane. The government is taking the correct stance on this as bad as I hate to admit it.

haha thats such bullshit. if you are gonna have some flying bomb, you damned well better protect the passengers on board and people who can be effected if some nut drives that bomb into a sky scraper. no matter what rediculous arguments you or the airline industry or the government give, the FINAL determining factor of all those lives was GIVING those planes to the hijackers.

Another industry that has very high liability for lives is the nuclear power industry. do you possibly believe they would allow people to walk into their plants and blow shit up? hell no. they got machine guns and rocket launchers guarding their facilities. and if terrorists did happen to fuck up a nuke plant enough to cause a nuclear fallout, you damned well better believe it would be the fault of the utility companies for allowing people to walk in and use their own extremely deadly technology against them and the american people.
