From Courthouse News Service, Monday:
In a trial with $1 billion at stake, each tear a juror sheds for the victims of decade-old terror attacks in Israel could exact a heavy price for the Palestinian Authority.
Family members suing Palestinian governing bodies took to the stand last week to share often heartbreaking memories of relatives killed in a spate of attacks against Israeli civilians in the early 2000s, known as the Second Intifada.
During one witness's testimony, a juror "broke into sobs and uttered an expletive," the Palestinian Authority's lawyer Mark Rochon said.
"I don't want to embarrass jurors, and I am very cognizant of the fact that an element of the damages can be powerful emotional testimony, but if someone has a personal experience ... that would affect their ability to be fair, that's something we do need to know about," he added.
Rochon, from the Washington-based firm Miller & Chevalier, suspected that unexpected testimony about "sexual assault issues" caused the juror to weep.
Declining to issue a jury instruction, U.S. District Judge George Daniels commented, "This isn't the first time that I have seen a juror cry or react strongly to the emotional testimony of a particular witness."
Indeed, there were more tears in court later that day from a father recounting how a bomb dashed his plans for reconciliation.
...

Brother and sister Yitzhak and Esther Goldberg also recounted how they honored the memory of their father Stuart, who died in the Jan. 29, 2004, suicide bombing of a public bus in Jerusalem.
Esther gave her son her father's Hebrew name, Yechezkel, a fact that she said so disturbed her mother Shifra that, at first, she could only call the boy "baby."
"Her heart is just shattered, and it can never be put back together again," Esther said of her mother.
Yitzhak testified that he still searches through photos of the bombing on every anniversary of the attacks.
"I'm looking to find some more information, or more information than I know," he said.
Lawyers for the families submitted records from the Palestinian Authority's General Intelligence Service allegedly linking their employees Ahmed Salah and Ali Ja'ara to that attack, a spokeswoman said.
Ja'ara was the bomber, and Salah was convicted of aiding it, she added.
The Palestinian Authority's lawyer Rochon contends that the paperwork reflects only his client's massive "social welfare state."
Eleven people were murdered in that bombing.

Here is some of that evidence, showing (translated) PA documents referring to Ali Ja'ara:



Indeed, Ja'ara kept his 2004 salary even after he blew himself up. He was even promoted!


His family is almost certainly still being paid, today, as a reward for his murdering eleven people.
