Sokolow et al. v. PLO et al.
New York, NY

Palestine Liberation Organization

[SDNY] The 2004 lawsuit by victims of bombings in Israel seeks up to $3 billion in damages from attacks between January 2001 and February 2004 by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). In Sept 2008 U.S. District Judge George Daniels rejected the PLO's argument that the attacks were acts of war rather than terrorism. On April 27, 2020 the US Supreme Court overturned the appellate court's decision and instructed that court to revisit the case in light of new amendments to the Anti-Terrorism Act.
