The PLO and the Palestinian Authority must pay more than $230 million to the estate of a slain Jewish couple, a U.S. court ruled. U.S. District Judge Ronald Lagueux upheld a ruling finding the organizations responsible for the drive-by shooting eight years ago, and ordered each to pay more than $116 million. The Anti-Terrorism Act of 1991 allowed the estate’s lawyer to sue on behalf of the slain couple, an American and an Israeli, by allowing lawsuits against organizations that kill American citizens.
