Trial set for 9/11 case against airline security

Security companies are expected to argue they properly followed government security directives during the attacks

Associated Press

NEW YORK — A judge has set a June start date for a lawsuit that says an airline and several security companies are liable for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism attacks.

The case stems from the death of 31-year-old Mark Bavis. He was a West Newton, Mass., scout for the Los Angeles Kings professional hockey team who was aboard United Flight 175 when it struck the World Trade Center.

Lawyers for the family have blamed lax security measures for allowing terrorists to board the United Airlines flight. The airline and security companies sued by the family are expected to argue they properly followed government security directives issued prior to the attacks.
