    The appeals court found that the defendants were protected under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

    The court also said exceptions to the immunity rule do not apply because Saudi Arabia has not been designated a state sponsor of terrorism by the US state department.

    About 3,000 people were killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington which has been claimed by al-Qaeda.
