Alan Gross Lawsuit Against US Government Dismissed


alan-gross1Gross injustice. No pun intended.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by Alan Gross, an American imprisoned in Cuba, against the U.S. government, for whom he was working when he was arrested. Judge James Boasberg wrote Tuesday in an opinion dismissing the case that federal law bars lawsuits against the government based on injuries suffered in foreign countries.

The lawsuit was filed last year by Alan Gross. He was working for the U.S. Agency for International Development and its contractor Development Alternatives Inc. when he was arrested in 2009.

Gross had been working to bring internet access to the Communist island and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his work.

The lawsuit said he wasn’t prepared for his job’s risks. Gross settled with Bethesda, Md.-based DAI for an undisclosed amount earlier this month.

  1. antisemitism is growing we need to learn from our history the goyim arent are friends and we need to be careful

  2. “federal law bars lawsuits against the government” – isn’t it convenient?! Two sets of law for the rulers and the governed – worthy of a banana republic.
