US Judge: State Dept. ‘Mealy-Mouthed’ in Suit against PA

(Israelnationalnews.com) A U.S. federal judge Tuesday castigated the Obama administration for being “particularly unhelpful” and the State Department for being “mealy mouthed” concerning a lawsuit filed against the Palestinian Authority for a terrorist attack.

The $250 million lawsuit was filed by relatives of Esh Kodesh Gilmore, a security guard who was murdered at the age of 25 in an attack by Tanzim terrorists, a branch of the PA, outside Israel government offices in eastern Jerusalem in 2000.

U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler complained that government officials refused to offer opinions in the case, in which the judge has to decide whether to grant the PA a trial or issue a default judgment. The PA often has declined to defend itself in previous lawsuits for terrorist attacks.

"The Executive Branch of the United States has been particularly unhelpful in resolving this difficult Motion," Kessler wrote. "The Court requested that the State Department file a Statement of Interest in order to understand the international ramifications of any order it might enter, and to be apprised of our Government’s position about such ramifications. In this case, as in Knox v. The Palestinian Liberation Organization. … the State Department declined to do so. Instead it filed the identical mealy-mouthed Notice there as it did in this case. That Notice, for all practical purposes, said nothing.”
