Attorney Hussein Abu Hussein is set to argue on behalf of the family that the August 2012 ruling by the Haifa District Court finding that the Israeli military wasn't responsible for Corrie's death should be overturned.
She was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer during a nonviolent protest against the demolition of Palestinian homes in Rafah, Gaza on March 2003.
“During the past nine years, we have sought accountability in the Israeli courts for Rachel’s killing but were handed a verdict that showed blind indifference to the rights of the victim and little interest in seeking truth and justice,” said Craig Corrie, Rachel’s father.
The Corrie family filed a lawsuit against the State of Israel in 2005. The civil trial, held before the Haifa District Court, began March 2010 and lasted 16 months, with 23 witnesses testifying in 15 hearings.
In 2012, Judge Oded Gershon ruled against the Corrie family, deciding that the Israeli military was not responsible for Corrie's death and that she alone was responsible. The Corrie family is hoping to have this decision overturned.
