Lawsuit goes forward in the Cole bombing

Norfolk District Judge Doumar permitted the lawsuit involving the families of sailors killed in the Cole bombing to go forward. According to the article, Judge Doumar "briefly considered whether the laws of Yemen or Sudan" but plaintiffs' attorney Andrew C. Hall of Miami, said that he didn't want the lawsuit considered under traditional Islamic law because he didn't "want to be paid in camels." File that under "things I said I wish I could take back."
