Welcome to the Southern District of New York
September 11th Litigation Cases
Information for Counsel in September 11 Litigation
Unless otherwise noted, all hearings and conferences will be held in Judge Hellerstein’s courtroom, 14D, 500 Pearl Street.
Cases involving claims arising out of, resulting from, or relating to the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001 and naming an airline, an airport security company, and/or The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have been consolidated for discovery and other pre-trial proceedings. Honorable Alvin K. Hellerstein, District Judge, is presiding. Counsel in such cases should familiarize themselves with Judge Hellerstein’s Rules of Practice and Rules for Sept. 11 Consolidated Cases, as well as his rulings relating to the September 11 Litigation.
Filing of Correspondence
There has been some confusion about how parties in all cases pending before Judge Hellerstein related to the September 11 Litigation should file documents with the Court.
