Portland attorney wins $25B terrorism judgment

Alexa Koenig quoted in Portland Press Herald, February 1, 2013

Alexa Koenig, executive director of the Human Rights Center at the University of California School of Law in Berkeley, said in an email: “While I’m skeptical as to whether the impact of such judgments could be measured in any meaningful way, certainly any tools that can be used to mitigate the threat of terrorism are laudable. At a minimum, such judgments send a strong symbolic message about the extent to which terrorist acts are condemned.”
