Saudi Arabia is back on the receiving end of September 11th lawsuits.
The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals brought back Saudi Arabia as a defendant in the cases, which claim that the country supported al-Qaeda before the attacks.
The court says that reinstating the country on the lawsuits was a matter of consistency, citing another lawsuit where a man sued Afghanistan in connection with his wife's death in the September 11th attacks.
The same court and another lower-level court had both previously ruled that a country couldn't be sued, but decided to reverse the decision because of the precedent.
The lawsuits were brought in 2002 against countries, companies and organizations accused of helping terrorists plan the attack.
Saudi Arabia has asserted that the 9/11 commission found no evidence that its government providing funding to al-Qaeda.
