A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., has agreed to hear en banc a defamation suit in which the owners of Sudanese pharmaceutical plant say the United States intentionally labeled them as terrorists to justify bombing the facility in 1998 under the Clinton administration.

There was no dissent among the judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in granting the plaintiffs’ petition for an en banc hearing, a win for the plaintiffs, Salah El Din Ahmed Mohammed Idris and the El-Shifa Pharmaceutical Industries Company, and their lawyers at Jones Day. Oral argument is scheduled for Dec. 16.
