Boim, Stanley, et al. v. American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), et al.
Chicago, IL


[NDIL] Attorneys representing Stanley and Joyce Boim filed a lawsuit against American Muslims for Palestine ("AMP"); Americans for Justice in Palestine Educational Foundation ("AJP"); Rafeeq Jaber; Abdelbasset Hamayel; and Osama Abu Irshaid to hold them liable for a 2004 jury verdict and subsequent federal judgments under the Anti-Terrorism Act that awarded $156 million in damages to the parents of David Boim, a 17-year-old American student, murdered by Hamas. The lawsuit alleges AMP and AJP are alter egos and successors of HLF, AMS, and IAP, the entities that were originally found to be liable to the Boims under the Anti-Terrorism Act. Rafeeq Jaber, Abdelbasset Hamayel, and Osama Abu Irshaid are also alter egos of HLF, AMS, and IAP, because they directed and controlled the organizations in 1996 and are now operating and managing the entities that are the successors and alter egos of the organizations that are legally obliged to pay the judgment won by the Boims.
