NEW YORK - A US appeals court on Wednesday threw out a $655.5 million judgment against the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization after they had been found liable to a group of American families who accused them of supporting terrorist attacks in Israel.

The 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said a lower court judge erred in concluding he had jurisdiction over the defendants with regard to the plaintiffs' claims. The appeals court ordered that the lawsuit be dismissed.
