By a ruling of the US Supreme Court, claims brought against Yousef Jameel have finally been dismissed. Mr Jameel had been named as one of hundreds of defendants in a legal action brought on behalf of families of victims of the 2001 attack on New York. At the time the claims were made, the case received publicity in the UK media. Yousef Jameel, a successful businessman and renowned philanthropist, is a long-standing client of Carter-Ruck.
The successful US legal team was headed by Viet Dinh and Kenneth Caruso, assisted by consultant Andrew Stephenson in London.
