2nd Circuit Allows 9/11 Lawsuit Against Afghanistan to Move Forward

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed a lower court's denial of Afghanistan's motion to dismiss a complaint brought by the husband of a victim of the September 11th attacks. The court found that the plaintiff's suit was properly considered under the noncommercial tort exception to foreign sovereign immunity, but remanded the case back to the lower court to resolve factual issues concerning Afghanistan's involvement with the 9/11 attacks.
