Son of Bruce Eagleson, who was killed in 9/11 attacks, fights to make Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) law

Brett Eagleson, who was 15 when his father, Bruce Eagleson, was killed in the South Tower of the World Trade Center, is working for the passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act would narrow the scope of foreign sovereign immunity and authorize U.S. courts to hear cases involving claims against a foreign state for  death or injury damages as a result of an act of terrorism committed  by a foreign state or official.

“This is something I’m doing in honor of my dad,” Eagleson told Scott Whipple of the Middletown Press.

He will appear in a UK documentary this fall with former Senator Bob Graham that will examine Saudi Arabia and the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

Eagleson is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of passing JASTA.
