While I am not thrilled abut the FBI and CIA being deposed, I am also not thrilled about the air plane manufactures having to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars for 9/11.
Its really not Boeing’s fault hijackers flew planes into buildings.
It's like litigating against the hammer manufacturer when a mass murderer uses a hammer as the murder weapon.
Things are bad enough, although I thought that the feds had dealt with 911 in such a way as to prevent the destruction of our domestic Airline industry.
What other litigation might have triggered this? Is there a hint of what the underlying issue is?
No, but you could build a pretty good case for a suit against those who continue to allow people from terrorist states to immigrate to the US. At least IMO...
it is “proximate cause” litigation.
These are suits by anti-capitalists who seek to extend the proximate cause of any tort to the absurd extension. This is what real tort reform is about. Should civil libility exist when criminals act? When did EVERYTHING get submitted into attractive nuisance to create liability?
