9/11 families respond to U.S. administration's support of Saudi royal family in 9/11 lawsuit

Several family members of 9/11 victims have issued a statement on behalf of the 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism in response to the Solicitor General's refusal to support the 9/11 families' Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court. On Friday, May 29, the Justice Department filed a brief with the high court supporting the Saudi royal family's argument of sovereign immunity from the 9/11 terrorist financing lawsuit.
