Federal Judge Awards $6 Billion Against Iran, the Taliban and Al Qaeda in 9/11 Case


A New York federal judge who found Iran, the Taliban and Al Qaeda culpable in the 2001 terrorist attacks has approved a $6 billion default judgment against them.

The order signed Wednesday by Judge George Daniels is largely symbolic, but it provides some hope the relatives of Sept. 11 victims can someday recover damages. A federal magistrate judge recommended the damages over the summer.

Daniels last year signed a default judgment pertaining to a lawsuit brought by relatives of 47 victims. He found Al Qaeda, the Taliban and Iran liable and asked the magistrate to determine damages. He said support the defendants provided to Al Qaeda enabled the terror attacks.
