Caterpillar, Rachel Corrie and Israel

November 3, 2010

Previously, the Corrie family sued Caterpillar in U.S. court, but a federal court of appeals ruled that the company “cannot be held legally liable for the use of its bulldozers in Israeli military operations because the equipment is paid for with American government funds and represents an extension of American foreign policy, a federal appeals court ruled,” reported the New York Sun.
