NIST tries to dismiss our historic lawsuit: Your help needed to take next step
Earlier today — just two days before Christmas — NIST filed its “motion to dismiss” against the historic lawsuit we filed in September regarding NIST’s final report on Building 7 and the agency’s egregious response to the “request for correction” we initiated last year.
AE911Truth and our co-plaintiffs — eight 9/11 family members and 10 architects and structural engineers — now have until January 13 to amend our complaint and until early February to respond to the motion to dismiss.
I am asking you to please give today so that we have the resources needed to take the next step and expose NIST’s fraud in court. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by Monday, enabling our legal team, led by Mick Harrison of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, to get to work before the new year.
At the heart of this legal battle is whether the public has any power to hold government agencies accountable when they issue blatantly unresponsive decisions under the Data Quality Act. NIST is arguing that 9/11 family members and building professionals don’t have standing and that the Data Quality Act is not judicially enforceable.
Your gift today will allow AE911Truth to argue in federal court that NIST’s evasive response to our request for correction indeed violates the law and must be subject to judicial scrutiny — or the Data Quality Act ceases to have any meaning at all.
If we defeat the motion to dismiss, NIST will then have to defend the substance of its decision in court. If we prevail at that stage, NIST will be forced to genuinely respond to our analysis and will effectively have to reverse its conclusion that fire was the cause of Building 7’s destruction.
As the author of the request for correction — and on behalf of the dozen experts who gave input and the many 9/11 family members and building professionals who signed their names to this initiative — I am asking you to give generously so that we can keep taking the fight to NIST.
Your gift will continue the fight for 9/11 Truth.
