|There will be enormous hurdles to overcome, not least the possibility that the suit will be judicially repressed in some way; squashed or stunted down to near meaninglessness. The defendants are men of power, with resources, financial, legal, and political, beyond most people's ability to comprehend. The Center and the plaintiff's lawyers will have to rely on support and donations from citizens of the world to finance the prosecution of the case.
Were an inquiry into a crime of this magnitude to be properly conducted, by an arm of government or special prosecutor, it would require legions of lawyers and investigators, not to mention the support those people would have to rely on. Our aim is to conduct the lawsuit as our resources permit, appealing to the public to help us to replicate what a similarly disposed arm of government would bring to the task.
The attacks of September 11th were part of a complex and elaborate psychological operation that created in each citizen to a greater or lesser degree a fortress of denial, which has prevented many from any forthright attempt to investigate the truth about 9/11. Before justice will be allowed to breathe, that fortress must be destroyed. The Center for 9/11 Justice is dedicated to its demise. April Gallop's lawsuit is an effort in that direction. We will be reporting on it here.
On April 27, 2011, the 2nd Circuit affirmed the lower court's ruling. Its
decision can be found under SECOND CIRCUIT DECISION below (Adobe
PDF 107kb). As those who have followed the case will be aware, this
decision was no surprise in its outcome, but the Court on its own motion and
without the participation of the United States Attorney issued an Order to
Show Cause (OSC) why SANCTIONS in the amount of $15,000 should not be imposed
as a result of our having filed what the Court considers a frivolous lawsuit,
the product of cynical delusion and fantasy.
Update on case as of March 26th, 2011: All of the papers on our appeal from the District Court’s order dismissing the case have been submitted, and the Circuit Court has given us an oral argument date of April 5th at 11 AM in New Haven, Connecticut, at the Courthouse at 141 Church Street. The Court has allotted each side five minutes to present whatever arguments they have.
The Center for 9/11 Justice is a base for cooperative efforts to expose what its members and board believe are critical, strong, self-evident truths and un-truths about the attacks of 9/11: We believe they were in their essence an inside job supported by a vast, highly sophisticated and elaborate cover-up. Our aim is to expose the facts and evidence that we have learned, and demonstrate, to the extent we can, who was involved. The purpose of the Center is to help gather, formulate, and promulgate accurate and reliable survey, analysis, and marshalling of the evidence showing or tending to prove the great- grand-daddy conspiracy theory, maybe of all time.
