Unanimous Opinion of the Court above.
This was before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, United States Circuit Judge Patricia Millett writing the Opinion of the Court, joined by United States Circuit Judges Karen L. Henderson and Robert Wilkins.
Case name is SHABTAI SCOTT SHATSKY, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ESTATE OF KEREN SHATSKY, ET AL., APPELLANTS v. PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION, ET AL., APPELLEES.
VERY POOR procedural handling of this case by the District Court. The Judgement of the Court of Appeals is correct. There are not sufficient contacts by the Defendant PLO to establish personal jurisdiction by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. So I agree with the order vacating the Judgement and remanding to the District Court with orders to dismiss the case without prejudice for lack of personal jurisdiction.
Too bad it took 18 years of wasted litigation to reach this correct result.
