A divided federal appeals court today dismissed

a lawsuit concerning the C.I.A’s practice of rendition.


The Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals

In a six-to-five vote reversed an earlier decision and dismissed

a lawsuit against Jeppesen Dataplan Inc. A subsidiary of Boeing.

They were accused of arranging the flights used for rendition by the C.I.A.


Quotes from an article on the NY Times:
