911graphicxlcbs Trial Date Set For 9/11 Death Of West Newton Man


NEW YORK (AP) – A judge has set a June trial date for the first trial to result from the September 11, 2001 terrorism attacks.

Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein set the June 13 date to begin a trial stemming from the death of 31-year-old Mark Bavis. He was a West Newton 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 several security companies sued by the family are expected to argue they properly followed government security directives issued prior to the attacks.

The judge said the trial should be completed by July 22.
