Default DC court says Holocaust survivors can sue Hungary in the US for huge reparations

DC court says Holocaust survivors can sue Hungary in the US for huge reparations

Potential multi-billion dollar suit dates back to 2010. Appeals court rules that in pursuit of justice, case can be tried in States. Lawyers say decision could go to Supreme Court

BUDAPEST The second-highest court in the United States has reinstated a lawsuit brought by a group of Holocaust survivors and their families against the government of Hungary and its national railroad. The class action suit demands restitution for the role Hungary played in the murder of 500,000 Jews and the seizure of their property during World War II.

Setting the stage for what could be a landmark civil suit running into the tens of billions of dollars, Judge Patricia A. Millett wrote for the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on December 28 that Hungary could not force the plaintiffs to have the case tried in a Hungarian court.
