• Families, Lawyers, AE911Truth File Lawsuit against FBI over '9/11 Review Commission Report'

    For the first time ever, 9/11 family members and advocates are taking legal action against the FBI aimed at forcing the Bureau to assess and report the evidence known to the FBI of the World Trade Center’s explosive demolition as well as other unreported 9/11 evidence.

    In 2014, Congress mandated the FBI to form an external commission to conduct “an assessment of any evidence now known to the FBI that was not considered by the 9/11 Commission related to any factors that contributed in any manner to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.” A year later, the FBI released the Commission's final report, which did not include an assessment of evidence related to the WTC demolition nor an assessment of several other areas of evidence known to the FBI.

    Now the Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry and AE911Truth need your help to advance our historic lawsuit and bring this key evidence to light.

The FBI 9/11 Review Commission Lawsuit in a Nutshell

The FBI 9/11 Review Commission Lawsuit is complex litigation against the federal government comprising a number of phases that could last up to two years. The end goal is to compel the FBI to reconstitute its 9/11 Review Commission in some form, assess the evidence known to the FBI but omitted from the Commission's 2015 report, and include that evidence in a new, amended report to Congress and the American people.

Phase 1: Complaint and Motion to Dismiss

Drafting the complaint and preparing an extensive response to the defendants' motion to dismiss. This phase is now complete.

Phase 2: Motions for Summary Judgment

Drafting of briefs in opposition to the defendants' motion for summary judgment and in support of our motion for summary judgment.
