Senate could vote on JASTA next week to allow 9/11 lawsuits against Saudi Arabia

The Senate might vote as soon as next week on the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) that would permit family members of people killed in the attacks to file lawsuits against Saudi Arabia. JASTA would make exception to sovereign immunity protection for those countries involved in terrorist attacks, reports Brian J. Tumulty in USA Today.

The bill passed the Senate unanimously on the final day of the last Congress but was never voted on by the House.
