A judge ruled today in Manhattan that the construction company founded by Osama Bin Laden's father cannot be among the more than 200 defendants in six lawsuits filed by victims of September 11. The suit alleged that the company provided a "financial lifeline" to Al Qaeda, but the judge said no evidence tied the Saudi company to Bin Laden after he was removed as a shareholder following the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
