US judge rules that Los Angeles is not liable for airport shooting in 2002.
US District Judge Alicemarie Stotler has ruled that the City of Los Angeles cannot be held liable for a terrorist shooting at the Los Angeles International Airport three years ago.
The shooting, by an Egyptian immigrant, killed two people. The families of the victims filed a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming that the city failed to prevent the shooting, which took place at an El Al ticket counter on 4 July 2002, The Associated Press reported.
The judge reportedly said in the ruling that governments cannot generally be sued for injuries that are caused by third parties.
