Palestinians Settle Lawsuit

Josh Gerstein reports in Politico.com about the Palestinian Authority's settlement of a wrongful death lawsuit arising out of a terror attack in which an Israeli-American was murdered.
The settlement came in a case brought in New York by Leslye Knox, the widow of Aharon Ellis, a professional singer who was among six people killed in 2002 when a gunman opened fire on a Bat Mitzvah party where he was performing in the West Bank town of Hadera. The Al Aqsa Brigades, a militant group affiliated with the Palestine Liberation Organization, claimed responsibility for the attack, which was allegedly carried out by a Palestinian Authority security officer.
