According to the broadcaster, the complaint cited Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency reports that found some of the attackers had received support from individuals allegedly connected to the Saudi government.
The filing only became possible after USA lawmakers overrode then-President Barack Obama's veto last September to pass the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which permits such lawsuits in American courts.
The lawsuit alleges that Saudi "employees and agents" funneled cash to al-Qaida in the months before the attack, via a mosque in Culver City, California.
The lawsuit is being amended to include local residents and office workers who have been exposed to carcinogens in the aftermath of the attack. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, with the primary motive on trying to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the attacks.
A collection of more than 800 people hurt by the 9/11 terrorism attacks have filed a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia for its role in the incident, according to a new report.
Since then, there have been seven lawsuits filed in NY against Saudi Arabia, including Monday's complaint, all of which will go before Daniels.
Relatives of almost 2,000 people killed or wounded in the attacks filed a civil lawsuit against the Saudi government on Monday, alleging ties between the kingdom and plotters and hijackers involved in the event. The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), passed past year, eliminated that foreign protection.
"Saudi Arabia was duplicitous", the claimants charged. Further, Obama feared that foreign governments would retaliate with their own lawsuits while accusing a US citizen or group (accurately or not) of terrorism.
Mr Trump is reportedly popular with the kingdom and last week met with Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, though the president has been a vocal supporter of the victim's law in the past. They believe that rogue elements within the United States government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the U.S. war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
A USA magistrate judge has ordered the plaintiffs lawyers and Saudi Arabia to appear in court Thursday to find a way to coordinate the multiple cases. It has always been suspected, though, that some of the 9/11 plotters and hijackers had at least some connection to the Saudi kingdom.
