Certiorari Denied In Suit Against Palestinian Authority for Shooting of Jewish Worshipers In West Bank

The U.S. Supreme Court today denied review in Livnat v. Palestinian Authority, (Docket No. 17-508, certiorari denied 10/15/2018). (Order List). In the case the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals held (full text of decision) that the the 5th Amendment's due process clause precludes U.S. courts from asserting jurisdiction in a suit by the families of Jewish worshipers who were shot in the West Bank territories of Israel by Palestinian Authority armed guards at the holy site of Joseph’s Tomb.
