Zionist Judge Sets Arbitrary Time Limit on 9/11 Trial

April 30, 2011

The time is going to be expressed not in days, but in minutes.
- U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein on his arbitrary limits for the trial to determine who is responsible for 9/11

Arbitrary time limits yield arbitrary justice. Courtroom clocks should not supplant the right to a fair trial.
- Barry S. Gedan, a lawyer forced to work in a timed trial under Judge Lewis A. Kaplan
“A 9/11 Judge Sets a Month as Time Limit for a Trial”, New York Times, April 27, 2011

This bastard judicial system is so corrupt.
- 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani


In a judicial war of attrition waged against the 9/11 families, U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein has effectively blocked any trial for nearly 10 years, forcing all of the families to settle out of court, except one - the Bavis family from Boston.  Now, with only one family left standing in the 9/11 litigation, Hellerstein wants to severely limit the trial with an arbitrary time limit of 50 hours per side.  Judge Hellerstein has a clear conflict of interest in the 9/11 tort litigation.  His son is a lawyer in an Israeli law firm that represents one of the key defendants, ICTS, the airport security company that let the 19 hijackers on the planes.  Judge Hellerstein should be immediately removed from the 9/11 litigation and held accountable for obstructing justice.

"WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE TRUTH"

It was murder. We will never get over it.
We are fighting for the truth...
I hope there are people out there who want the truth.
- Mary Bavis, mother of 9/11 victim Mark Bavis


9/11 murder victim Mark Bavis, 31, was a scout for the Los Angeles Kings. A Boston native, he played four years on Boston University's hockey team, where his twin brother, Michael, is an assistant coach.  Bavis was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175.

9/11 TRIAL TO BE "LIKE A SPEED CHESS MATCH"

The Bavis family of Boston, the last family of 9/11 relatives left standing, will finally get a trial after 10 years, but the judge, Alvin K. Hellerstein, wants to keep the trial as short as possible.  Hellerstein, who has a clear conflict of interest in the case, has set an arbitrary time limit on the trial of one month with only 50 hours for each side.  As Barry S. Gedan, a lawyer who was forced to represent a plaintiff in a trial in which both sides were given only 14 hours, said:  "Arbitrary time limits yield arbitrary justice. Courtroom clocks should not supplant the right to a fair trial." 

The New York Times reported on Hellerstein's arbitrary time limit:

Donald A. Migliori, a lawyer for the Bavises, said limiting the trial to one month and dividing the time equally — he made the 50- to 60-hour estimate — was ambitious for a case of such magnitude, particularly for his client, the plaintiff, who bears the burden of proof. The lawsuit contends that the hijackers were able to board United Airlines Flight 175 in Boston because of negligence by United and other defendants, which include an airport security firm.

“The person that is affected the most is my client,” Mr. Migliori said. “We’re talking about millions of pages of documents. We’re talking about distilling one of the most important stories in American history.”

What the New York Times does not say is that the "airport security firm" is the Israeli owned company, Huntleigh USA, which is owned by the Mossad company ICTS NV (International Consultants on Targeted Security).  It needs to be stressed that Judge Hellerstein has a serious conflict of interest in the 9/11 tort litigation because his son works for the Israeli law firm that represents and works closely with the parent company of ICTS.  Judge Hellerstein should never have been allowed to handle the 9/11 tort litigation with a close family connection to one of the key defendants.   

HELLERSTEIN'S CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Is is right for Judge Hellerstein to set arbitrary time limits on the 9/11 trial?  Is it even proper for Hellerstein, a devoted Zionist whose son lives on an Israeli settlement, to oversee a trial in which one of the key defendants is an Israeli "airport security" company?  Hellerstein's son is a lawyer with an Israeli law firm that represents the parent company of ICTS, one of the key defendants in the 9/11 litigation.  Is this why Hellerstein wants to “time the trial like a speed chess match” and keep the whole trial limited to one month?  Why is he allowed to protect the Israeli defendants by setting arbitrary time limits on the trial?  Is this all the justice that 9/11 deserves?  Will the judge, a dedicated partisan of Zionism, get away with his absurd restrictions?  Do Americans care enough about 9/11 truth and justice to stand up against this Zionist hijacking of our judicial system?


Judge Alvin Hellerstein has a clear conflict of interest in the 9-11 tort litigation because his son, Joseph, is a lawyer with the Israeli law firm Amit, Pollak & Matalon.  Hellerstein's law firm represents and is closely connected with Cukierman & Company, the parent company of ICTS, one of the key defendants in the 9/11 litigation.

From:  Judge Sets a One Month Deadline in 9/11 Wrongful Death Case

Mark Bavis was a passenger on the second plane that hit the World Trade Center on September 11th. His family have waited nine years to sue United Airlines for wrongful death and have refused to settle the case out of court, unlike other families affected by the disaster. Their suit is the last pending lawsuit related to the events of September 11th, and Federal Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein has made the rare move of putting a month limit on the length of the trial in order to expedite a judgment. Each side will have between 50 and 60 hours to present its case. “The time is going to be expressed not in days, but in minutes,” explained Hellerstein. “Everything the party wishes to do from openings through summations.”

Both the prosecution and defense have expressed their unhappiness with Hellerstein's decision. “The person that is affected the most is my client,” said Donald Migliori, the lawyer for the Bavis family. “We’re talking about millions of pages of documents. We’re talking about distilling one of the most important stories in American history.” And legal experts aren't too thrilled, either. “I’m sure if I shared this with my friends who are litigators, they’d be horrified,” said Yale law professor Stephen L. Carter.
