Relatives of September 11 victims say they're angry that the Justice Department is supporting the Saudi royal family's bid to be removed from a 9/11 lawsuit. The families of some victims have accused the royal family of financially backing terrorist groups that carried out the 2001 attacks. The Justice Department filed a brief with the US Supreme Court on Friday. It supports the Saudis' argument that the royal family as a sovereign state cannot be sued in a US court. Bill Doyle's son was killed at the World Trade Center. He says the Obama administration's court filing undermines the US fight against terrorism.
