A Saudi charity that allegedly funded terror activities cannot be sued for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks because of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, a federal judge has ruled. Southern District of New York Judge Richard Conway Casey found that the Saudi High Commission was shielded from suit because it has presented a prima facie case that it is a foreign sovereign and has not waived immunity. He made similar findings on suits brought against the commission's president and the Saudi Interior Minister.
