UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
JOHN HAGERMAN, et al.,
Civil Action 02-02147 (HHK)
THE SOCIALIST PEOPLE’S LIBYAN
ARAB JAMAHIRIYA, et al.,
Before the court is the United States of America’s “Statement of Interest” [#104].
Through its statement, the United States has brought to the court’s attention that Congress has
enacted the Libyan Claims Resolution Act, Pub. L. No. 110-301, 122 Stat. 2999 (2008)
(“Act”). The Act operates to settle all pending claims between the United States of America
and its nationals and the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and its nationals,
which are based on that State’s former status as a state sponsor of terrorism and to eliminate
this court’s jurisdiction over such claims. In light of the submission by the United States, it is
this 27th day of April 2009, hereby
ORDERED that plaintiffs shall show cause in a writing that shall be filed no later
than May 5, 2009, why this case should not be dismissed for lack of subject matter
Henry H. Kennedy, Jr.
