|The President of the United States and solicitor general have failed us.
Siding with the Saudis once again .
New President same old protection given to Saudi America as I now call them .\
The ramifications on this decision is a travesty of justice our constitutional rights were overlooked and without question makes this country most vulnerable for future terroist attacks
On Behalf of The 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism
In Response to the Supreme Courtís Denial of
The 9/11 Familiesí Petition for Writ of Certiorari
(In Re: Thomas E. Burnett, Sr., et al. v. Al Baraka Investment & Development Corp., et al.,
Case No. 03-CV-9849 (GBD);
In Re Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001, 03 MDL 1570)
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 29, 2009 ó We are deeply disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court
has denied our petition for writ of certiorari, thus deciding not to hear our appeal of a lower courtís
decision to dismiss our charges against five Saudi defendants we allege provided material support for
the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The High Courtís decision only further denies us our day in court, while enabling members of the
ruling family to evade accountability. We respect the Supreme Court as the ultimate arbiter of legal
matters in our system of government; nevertheless, we find this result a travesty of justice and a betrayal
of the 9/11 families and others whose lives are impacted by terrorism.
In a sad day for justice, the Saudi ruling classí interests have been advanced at the expense of the rights
granted to civil litigants under our Constitution and the laws designed by Congress to deter terrorism
such as the Anti-Terrorism Act, 18 USC 2331 et seq. We believe the High Courtís decision sets a
dangerous precedent that those who provide support to terrorism atrocities will now see themselves as
beyond the reach of U.S. laws. The High Courtís decision allows fundamental questions of law to go
unresolved, and lets stand a decision by the Second Circuit that the Department of Justice itself believes
to be wrong, potentially affording terrorism sponsors undeserved protection from accountability in
ongoing and future cases. We will continue to do everything within our rights to stop the material
support pipeline fueling al Qaeda and to press our remaining claims in the case.
