An Egyptian man accused of having links to Al-Qaeda is suing the federal government for $37 million
Mahmoud Jaballah is seeking to claim $34 million in damages from the federal government for him and his family as well as an additional $3.4 million in punitive damages. Jaballah's lawsuit claims that the federal government repeatedly violated his human rights.
While in Egypt, Jaballah was accused of participating in the assassination of Anwar Sadat, the third president of Egypt and having participated in a Jihadi organization. He was arrested twice for these charges but found innocent of these claims both times.
