US Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit on Armenian Properties in Turkey

  • Friday, April 5, 18:24

 US Federal Judge Dolly M. Gee, wrongfully claiming lack of jurisdiction, dismissed a lawsuit filed by Armenian-Americans demanding compensation from the Republic of Turkey for confiscating their properties during the Armenian Genocide, Asbarez reports.

Attorneys Berj Boyajian, Mark Geragos, Ara Jabagchourian, and Brian Kabateck had filed a class action lawsuit on July 29, 2010, on behalf of Garbis Davoyan of Los Angeles, Hrayr Turabian of New York City, and all Armenians whose ancestors had real estate holdings in Turkey.

Since the Republic of Turkey and its two major banks contended that US courts lacked jurisdiction over foreign entities due to sovereign immunity, the Armenian plaintiffs argued that the lawsuit should proceed due to two exceptions to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA): "Commercial Activity" and "Expropriation."

The Federal Judge ruled that both of these exceptions did not apply in this case. She found the banks' commercial role in the US to be minimal and unrelated to the claimed grievances. She ruled that the expropriation exception is also not valid because the property was not "taken in violation of international law."

WRONGFULLY CLAIMING? What an objective journalist opinion we see at the very heading of the news? Haha so pitiful attemp of Armenians, what United States has to do with a property belongs to the lands of Turkey? Instead of suiting banks for demand of money, shouldn't they go to an International Court and suit for their claim of genocide first? What we see here is the Armenian moral priority and real aim of their fabricated genocide. In addition what wealth power could they ever able to have, that now they are claiming billions? Armenians represented a low class in Ottomans, that's US -of course after joining them to US army as soldiers after wwI- made them look like gentries, elites or something. Oh but don't worry Americans you'll learn about their cheap and ingrate Armenian souls soon.
