A federal judge has rejected claims against dozens of individuals, banks and foreign officials who allegedly participated in, sponsored, aided and abetted the 9/11 terror attacks, largely through funding al-Qaida.

Southern District of New York Judge George B. Daniels has dismissed cases against 37 defendants, including relatives of Osama bin Laden, for lack of jurisdiction because they had insufficient contacts with the United States. The judge’s ruling still leaves several cases and defendants in the multidistrict litigation, 03 MDL 1570, including the Dubai Islamic Bank.
