Civil terrorism law is an emerging area of law and an intriguing subject. It is attracting attention from many different areas including the legal arena, the United States Government, the scholarly community, and the media. Until now, there has been no comprehensive reference available for attorneys interested in or working on civil terrorism cases in this new area of law and political science. This book is designed to fill that gap.This book focuses on civil terrorism law and practice. The authors teach you about the major civil terrorism cases that have helped to generate this area of law, as American victims have struggled to find justice through the legal system. You will also learn about the federal statutes that are connected to this area of law including the Alien Tort Claims Act of 1789, the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1990 which is also know as the Klinghoffer Act, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, the Flatow Amendment, and more. They also show the distinct difference between civil terrorism cases, where virtually all targets of plaintiffs' claims have been determined to be either state sponsors of terrorism, designated terrorist organizations, or otherwise proudly admit, acknowledge or boast of their violent and often criminal activities, and other civil cases where the court determines how to balance conflicting but usually legitimate legal claims. The authors also teach you about problems with satisfying judgements once they are awarded, the responsibility of the plaintiff to provide the burden of proof that the defendant is liable, and the feasibility of lawsuits against terrorist organizations.This book is an essential reference if you are currently interested or involved in civil terrorism cases, interested in teaching lawyers, political scientists, and law and political science students about this new area of law, or encouraging the development of civil terrorism law as its own distinct area of American and international civil law.
