Court Dismisses 9/11 Claim Against United Airlines

Last week a U.S. federal court judge dismissed United Airlines from a lawsuit seeking damages from the 2001 hijacking of American Airlines Flight 11 and subsequent crashing of the aircraft into the World Trade Center. The complaint alleged that United Airlines should be held partially responsible for injuries caused by the terrorist attack because United shared authority over a security screening checkpoint at Portland International Jetpoint through which two of the hijackers passed before flying to Boston, where the hijackers would once again pass through another security checkpoint before boarding Flight 11. The first security checkpoint was United's only connection to Flight 11.
