Trial underway in World Trade Center suit

Developer seeks to make two airlines pay for 9/11 damages

A trial that’s been more than a decade in the making is underway this week in New York.

After 9/11, World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein sued United Airlines, American Airlines, Boeing Co., and other aviation and security companies and their insurers. He seeks to make them pay for what he called “reckless” security breaches that caused the Twin Towers to collapse. A trial is taking place this week in a federal district court in Lower Manhattan.
