U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today released the following statement on Sokolow v. PLO:

“Congress passed the Antiterrorism Act to hold accountable dangerous entities for acts of terrorism. In the case of Mark Sokolow, the judge and jury found the Palestinian Authority and the PLO guilty in the heinous attack that maimed and killed dozens, including our fellow Americans. Despite this, the Trump administration has urged the Supreme Court to not take up this case – a move that goes against the well-decided verdict that would hold accountable the Palestinian Authority and PLO for this repugnant terror attack. The bottomline is this: the Court’s authority should be respected and the victims of these horrific attacks should be allowed to secure some measure of justice for the mindless violence they have already suffered.”  -- U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer
