Antiterrorism Litigation Group

The Antiterrorism Litigation Group assists AAJ members litigating civil claims arising from acts of domestic and international terrorism on behalf of victims of terrorist attacks and their families. The group educates members about current U.S. laws used by victims of terror to bring their attackers to justice and to hold those who support terrorists accountable for their complicit conduct, including the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA), the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), the Justice Against State Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), and the Justice for United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism (USVSST). Group members also discuss civil claims arising from common law and state law tort claims such as assault, battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and wrongful death.

The Antiterrorism Litigation Group was formed in 2020. Members will have access to the Antiterrorism Litigation Group Document Library and the Litigation Group list server. Education programs and meetings will be held throughout the year, including at AAJ's Annual and Winter conventions.
